The CLASS Project.
National Wildlife Federation, Washington, DC.
The CLASS project is a series of investigations and projects designed by the National Wildlife Federation as supplementary materials for existing junior high school environmental curricula. This notebook contains nine different sections: an introduction, six content areas, a series of case studies, and a resource bibliography. The six content areas cover energy use, environmental issues, forest/watershed management, hazardous substances, wetlands, and wildlife habitat management. Each of these content areas includes several components: important background information and content objectives; a set of investigations to explore the topic and learn management and ecological concepts; a list of suggested community action projects; a list of optional research projects; and a poster with suggestions for introducing the content area. The case studies are brief descriptions of environmental projects carried out by students around the country. The resource bibliography includes the names of reference materials for the teacher and student, free or inexpensive material from government and private organizations, films, and related educational activities.
