Environmental Education Manual for Grades I to XII.
Houghton, J. R.
This manual focuses on the interdisciplinary approach to environmental education for grades 1 to 12 by providing curriculum models for each grade level. Models, presented in a three-column format, display relationships between concepts and ideas with an environmental focus and various subjects/disciplines. The central column (headed Environmental Focus) is made up of two sections called themes and objectives (knowledge/understandings, skills/abilities/processes, and values/attitudes). These are connected through a system of linking arrows to right/left columns housing the "related strands" of material (topics/objectives) found within individual subject areas or disciplines. In an attempt to help the user become comfortable and familiar with the model of the curriculum plan, each grade is prefaced by a case study which describes an actual school setting and teaching situation. These studies are designed to "walk through" the model and allow the user to have some practice with its format and purpose. Included in appendices are: two special case studies focusing on the work of school administrators; objectives for topics in junior high courses (industrial education, home economics, business education) and senior high courses (industrial education, home economics); general objectives for environmental education; and other, related information.
