Interdependence of Living Things: A Teacher's Manual for General Level Program Development--Grades 7 and 8. Science and Society Teaching Units. Informal Series/61.
Roberts, Douglas A.; And Others
An episodic and activity oriented approach is employed in this unit that illustrates the theme of interdependence of living things. Concepts related to dependence, competition, community, and ecosystems are developed through a case study of a raccoon problem. Various means of solving the raccoon problem are explored within a societal context. Five episodes comprise the unit. Each episode contains: (l) a suggested time requirement; (2) curriculum summary (describing the content, objectives, behaviorial evaluation examples, and teaching essentials); and (3) a teaching approach (providing instructional suggestions). Teachers and student resource sheets that were designed to accompany the episodes are included in the appendices. (ML)
