Race To Save the Planet: Activity Guide. Environmental Issues across the Curriculum.
WGBH-TV, Boston, MA.
This activity guide corresponds to a college television course titled, "Race to Save the Planet," though it is designed to be used independently of or in conjunction with viewing the series. The goal of the guide is to aid teachers in incorporating topics relating to environment in the classroom. The guide is made up of three main sections: activities, reproducible student pages, and resources. The activities section is divided into 10 units with the following themes: history, climate, overdevelopment, development, wilderness, energy, agriculture, waste, politics, and sustainability. Each unit is organized into sections that include an overview, activities, questions, key words, a program synopsis, and recommended readings. The reproducible student pages feature articles and information that encourage students to grapple with the issues and to consider their roles in environmental problem solving. This section also includes information about careers, volunteer opportunities, summer activities, and educational resources. The resource section provides a sampling of educational organizations and materials. Also included is an examination of the activities of the Education for Living in the Nuclear Age group in an effort to inspire teacher collaboration. (Author/MCO)
