Environmental Respect: A New Approach to Outdoor Education.
Huck, Albert R.; Decker, Eugene
Most outdoor education programs do not include the teaching of correct outdoor behavior. The purpose of this manual is to assist educators and concerned lay persons in establishing an outdoor education program with an instructional strategy that will manipulate students into becoming responsible, ethical, respectful outdoor citizens. Both lay persons and educators can use the detailed manual explanations, directions, and hints to guide them through the entire process of designing an Environmental Respect curriculum package, from program inception through approval and implementation to evaluation and modification. Five sample Curriculum Lesson Ideas (Investigating Wildlife, Investigating Hunting, Investigating Fishing, Investigating Hiking and Camping, and Survival) attempt to bring out the unique qualities of this outdoor education philosophy which emphasizes developing environmental respect by utilizing the outdoor sports. Respectful behavior is the essence of the units which begin with an introduction and a topic outline. For each topic there is an overview, a basic approach, and behavioral objectives with activities for achieving them. A resource section lists sources of appropriate teaching materials for each unit. Additional resource material sources such as federal and state agencies, associations, and companies are listed in an appendix. (SB)
