Connections in Our World: Focus on Environmental Education.
Yambert, Paul A.; And Others
This booklet presents the text for an environmental education learning sequence designed to enhance environmental knowledge and environmental ethics by providing information about: (1) energy; (2) pollution; (3) interrelationships; (4) impacts; (5) cycles; and (6) quality of life. The sequence, suitable for students in grades 5 through 8, is based on accepted principles of developmental psychology in both the cognitive and affective domains. In addition, the sequence has been specifically constructed to provide data regarding levels of maturation within these domains. In the case of environmental ethics, the sequence conforms closely to the three Kohlbergian levels of moral development. This theoretical grounding results in more effective learning and in obtaining informative data about learners' levels of thinking and problem-solving. (JN)
