Creating Cooperative Living Habitats in the Community.
Peters, Richard Oakes
This teaching guide focuses on courses integrating social studies and the environment. The guide is divided into the following parts: (1) "'ECO/Social Studies' Course Syllabus--K-12 Teacher Education"; (2) "Culture Literacy, National Standards, and Georgia's QCCs"; (3) "Sample Unit--Outline"; (4) "Using a Matrix to Study Natural Environments"; (5) "Using a Matrix To Study Social Environments"; and (6) "Sample Lessons." The guide's ECO/Social Studies Course, "Creating a Relationship with Nature," is a course designed for K-12 social studies education majors, and is organized around selected standards. The guide states that students in the course engage in classroom and field-based studies that emphasize the character and interdependence of natural and social (human-made) environments on local, regional, state, national, and worldwide scales. The guide gives detailed goals for students and course objectives for every part of the unit. (BT)
