The Ethics of Environmental Concern: A Rationale and Prototype Materials for Environmental Education Within the Humanistic Tradition. Final Report, Volume 5.
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 diverse instructional units integrating values and environmental education. Designed for secondary students, each unit contains lesson plans, objectives, and student readings. Unit 1 provides eight student activities focusing on the effect of ancient Chinese values and modern philosophy on Chinese life-styles and attitudes toward the environment. Unit 2 lists the components of student "messing about" kits which contain familiar objects such as pictures, seeds, booklets, and cans as well as instructional media. Students examine the objects in the kit in order to arrive at greater environmental awareness and clarify their values about the life-styles necessary to maintain a balanced relationship with nature. Unit 3 uses poetry and personal reflections about trees to involve students in man's disposition toward nature and others. (Author/DE)
