The Community, the Social Studies, and Student Environmental Awareness.
Peters, Richard O.
An environmental education program that combines the social studies curriculum, community interaction, and the study of environment is described. Since man and nature live in a complex, continuous, and inseparable partnership, every environmental program should stress the interrelationships that exist between man and nature. Several ways by which students can be aided in developing perceptions of the interdependence of man and his environment are described including field trips, nature walks, guest speakers, weekend day trips, and overnight camping trips. Commercially available audiovisual materials and books that use this approach to environmental education are also suggested. (Author/DE)
