Equinox. A Model for the Environmental Education Curriculum for Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve in Delaware's Schools.
Baker, Thomas M.; Reiher, John F.
This publication represents the state model for environmental education curriculum for kindergarten through grade twelve in Delaware's schools. The document defines environmental education, lists major curriculum objectives and guidelines, and stresses the importance of the interdisciplinary approach. Four model units, representing the grade level blocks K-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12, have been expanded to demonstrate the conversion of objectives into a program of student learning experiences. Each expansion includes: global objectives, instructional objectives and suggested activities for the instructional objective. The model is organized around six major global objectives dealing with energy sources, earth resources, resource reclamation, population dynamics, interdependence and quality of life. Following each global objective is a series of instructional objectives for use in the development of local programs. For each instructional objective, the grade level and subject areas into which it may be infused have been suggested. A bibliography concludes this publication. (BT)
