Colorado Model for Conservation Education: Concepts.
Ek, George; And Others
This guide describes a model to help students understand environmental and conservation concepts. The guide proposes four concepts: (1) The Wholeness of Earth's Systems; (2) The Effects of Ecosystems on Human Beings; (3) Human Beings are Now the Most Influential of Earth's Organisms; and (4) Our Ability to Comprehend Must be Coupled With the Obligation of Self-Control. There are four segments, each of which contains a three-grade portion of the K-12 span. Each segment treats the four concepts and offers considerations and approaches for introducing students to the concepts. (RE)
