Learning through Landscapes: Grounds for Examination. The Challenge of the Secondary School Site. [Videotape].
This 25-minute videotape briefly describes the current condition of many of England's secondary school grounds and shows what can be done to improve them. Empowering students to help in redesigning the surrounding school grounds into a conservation area is described. Examples are provided showing how grounds influence student social relations; positively impact behavior; provide opportunities for specific nature clubs; and offer opportunities for physical activities, including activities that consider students with physical and educational disabilities. Further, it explains the usefulness of school grounds for delivering the curriculum in environmental education as well as cross-curricular projects. How these projects contribute to creating responsible stewardship of the environment and instill pride in accomplishment concludes the video. (GR)
