Teacher's Guide: Educational Materials in Resource Recovery: Grades K-12. Second Edition.
Berg, Cathy A.
This guide contains a bibliography of curricula (available from agencies, organizations, and through ERIC), audiovisual aids, children's books, and publications about resource recovery. Resource recovery is presented as a strategy to reduce air and water pollution, to conserve natural resources, and to save energy. These materials (suitable for students in grades K-12) are listed to help promote the goal of reducing dependence on waste disposal by reducing the amount of waste generated and by recovery of materials and energy from waste. Curricular areas in resource recovery range from industrial arts and home economics to educational guides for educable mentally handicapped students. Five basic tenets of resource recovery are presented, with a list of student activities for each. They are: (1) reduction; (2) reuse; (3) recycling; (4) conversion; and (5) disposal. It is suggested that greater participation, increased communication, and expanded community involvement could result from student use of the activities. (ML)
