Take Pride in America Educational Leader's Guide.
Sledge, Janet H., Comp.
The Take Pride in America (TPIA) school program encourages volunteer stewardship programs to help protect, enhance, and manage public lands such as school sites, forests, parks, water reservoirs, historical sites, fish and wildlife areas, public nature preserves, and wilderness areas in the United States. From this program an educational guide and video have been developed to encourage adults and youth groups to join with thousands of others in grassroot volunteer efforts to rekindle feelings of respect for the land. This guide is designed to show how to increase the respect and concern for the country's natural and cultural resources among our youth. These activities primarily provide educational enrichment activities for young people of junior and senior high school age in the classroom or in youth activities related to scouting, 4-H clubs, Future Farmers of America, and other church, synagogue, and community organizations. The leader's guide provides activities intended to make TPIA a real and living experience for youth groups. Improvisation is encouraged as necessary to turn the concepts into workable educational activities. Throughout the guide, the term "participants" is used to identify the individuals and groups to which this guide is targeted. (CW)
