Environmental Education Handbook.
Montana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Helena.
This handbook is designed to help educators develop an environmental curriculum for their school districts. An introduction to the publication suggests ways of using the handbook and states a philosophy of environmental education. Most of the remaining pages are devoted to 20 teaching cells, or units, on various grade levels, K-12. Each unit contains an introduction and some background information for the teacher, and an appropriate activity. The topics are primarily ecological and biological in nature. Organic gardening, populations, and field ecology are among the topics covered. Each unit is designed as a starting point for the teacher and can be expanded and developed to suit individual needs. Final sections of the handbook include a listing of environmental education programs in Montana, a bibliography, a listing of resource personnel and agencies, and a survey of environmental curricula.
