Environmental Education Teacher's Guide, Junior High School. A Core Experience Study of the Human Environment.
Bennett, Dean B.; Willink, Wesley H.
This Environmental Education Teacher's Guide, developed for use in the junior high school, is designed to familiarize teachers with how an environmental education program can help in their teaching and in achieving the goals of the school. The suggested core activities in this guide are designed to be a motivating way of introducing junior high school students to a practical understanding of the human environment. The activities focus on those factors important in evaluating the compatibility of land uses with each other and with the natural environment. The practicality of the unit is enhanced by the application of facts and concepts to a developed river corridor. The activities have been devised to develop specific understandings, feelings, and skills. Basic concepts, attitudes, objectives, and skills are identified and a pre-post test is included to help the teacher assess educational outcomes. (BT)
