Preparing for a Quieter Tomorrow.
Dickman, Donna McCord
Presented is an environmental noise module developed as an instructional guide for teachers in grades seven through twelve. The guide consists of eight lecture summaries on noise-related topics including characteristics of sound, sound measurement, noise control, and the effects of noise on humans. Accompanying these summaries are suggested projects, experiments, field trips, films, readings and discussion questions. The module's goal is to assist teachers in creating an awareness of noise as an environmental pollutant, explaining the adverse effects of noise, identifying noise sources and control techniques, and stimulating student involvement in working for a quieter community environment.
