Recology: Material Conservation Program Fieldbook.
Recology is the combination of teaching and learning through the interaction of conservation (waste management and recycling) and ecology. This fieldbook is designed to provide an overview of the development of a Recology environmental education program. The program facilitates infusion of material conservation education into existing curriculum. Section I is an introduction to the fieldbook. Section II discusses the processes used to develop the classroom components of the fieldbook (presented in section VI). Section III explains five basic operational elements which have been identified and characterized by the Recology program, including external participation, internal participation, technical assistance, planning, and facilitators. Section IV provides guidelines for implementation of the suggested program (addressing materials, techniques, and methods, and basic components and how they work together). Concluding remarks are offered in section V. Section VI is an appendix containing two elementary school Recology curriculums, and two middle school Recology curriculums. Each curriculum contains five cross-curricular lesson plans with objectives, focus, activities, evaluation, and extension components. (LZ)
