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 instructional units dealing with population growth and perception of the environment. Designed for junior high students, each unit contains an extensive introduction to orient a teacher to the major concerns, rationale, objectives, lesson plans, student materials, and evaluation components. Unit 1 includes 16 student activities that require students to examine the variables of population change, problems of population growth, the various stages of population growth, and ethical questions about the need to maintain a balanced relationship between population size and the natural environment. Unit 2 contains 11 activities about how various world cultures perceive the environment. Unit 3 includes 12 student activities in which students reflect on the economic development of the United States and its implication on both the natural and international environmental situation.
