TVA--A World of Resources.
Lyon, Anne, Ed.
In studying the earth's natural resources and the systems governing them, students need to understand the interrelationships of resources and ecosystems. This curriculum program for junior high school students investigates the environment as a whole. It is designed to supplement existing school curricula in science and social studies by presenting activities that draw from students the concepts of interdependence, change, adaptation, energy flow, and diversity. The curriculum guide contains eight units of study: (1) Air Resources; (2) Cultural Resources; (3) Energy Resources; (4) Forest Resources; (5) Recreation Resources; (6) Water Resources; (7) Wildlife Resources; and (8) an overview unit on how the curriculum integrates the management of these resources. Each unit consists of an overview and a series of factsheets, a concept map, an activities matrix for factsheet references, students activities, a curriculum rationale, and a glossary of terms. A list of 121 additional Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) selected references, TVA publications, curricular and book resources, resource materials, and resource organizations is included. (MDH)
