Development of an Interpretive Structural Model and Strategies for Implementation Based on a Descriptive and Prescriptive Analysis of Resources for Environmental Education/Studies. A Sourcebook for the Design of a Regional Environmental Learning System, Volume VI: Content-Oriented Resources.
Warfield, John N.
Reported are possible methods for integrating environmental education into existing public school curricula. This volume proposes a technique called "piggy-backing" by which environmental education may be integrated into existing curricula with none or very little increase in teacher work loads and per pupil cost. Examples of integration include discussion for eighth-grade mathematics. Specific mathematics problem sets are described which deal with energy and environmental issues. (RE)
