Environmental Education for the Gifted and Talented.
Designed for school personnel, the booklet suggests a framework for providing programs for the gifted and talented (G/T) students that will develop a concern for environmental problems. After a description of environmental education and a rationale for its place in the classroom, descriptions of three Indiana programs for G/T students are provided. Suggestions for projects in each of the following areas are listed (with sample projects in parentheses): community documentation, preservation, and restoration (plan and implement a series of informational presentations on the history of the community emphasizing ecological trends); environmental improvement (monitor the water quality of water resources near the community and make the information available to the appropriate sources); and energy conservation (cooperate with local mechanics to develop a car tune up campaign). A list of principles of a G/T environmental education program is provided and resources for projects, such as business, industry, and organizations, are surveyed. (PHR)
