The Ethics of Environmental Concern: A Rationale and Prototype Materials for Environmental Education Within the Humanistic Tradition. Final Report, Volume 3.
Allen, Rodney F.
As part of the series of student materials developed by the Environmental Education Project at Florida State University, this volume contains three units for American history, American studies, and American literature courses. Selected readings from literature are presented to help students examine human values about the environment from an historical prespective. Designed for secondary students, each unit begins with an analytical model to test the values and life-style dispositions in the reading selections. The first unit examines six literature selections from colonial and early American history, using a model developed by anthropologist Clyde Kluckholm. This model provides an ideational relationship between goals, values, and commitments exhibited in the literature selections. The second unit employs the creative process model of landscape architect, Lawrence Halprin, to examine environmental values from seven literature selections written around the turn of the century. The final unit requires students to analyze life-styles from seven literature selections about the present and future using a set of value-clarification questions. Each unit includes a set of student discussion questions and teaching objectives. (Author/DE)
