Changing Landscapes: Integrated Teaching Units.
Whitty, Helen, Ed.
This collection of teaching units developed in Australia arises from "Special Forever: An Environmental Communications Project," which enables students to develop critical awareness of their local environments and communicate this awareness effectively. The project also aims to encourage school-based action in support of the environment and facilitate the publication of students' work as they study and respond to environmental issues. The collection's units are programs of learning tied to purposeful activity and have already undergone successful trials in elementary classrooms in Australia. The collection is divided into the following sections: Introduction; Themes; Learning Sequence; Living Together (Unit 1: Kids Care; Unit 2: Wiggly Worms; Unit 3: Food for Thought; Unit 4: Friends for Life; Unit 5: Gone Feral; Unit 6: Who Eats What?; Unit 7: Whose Problems?; Unit 8: Liquid Gold; Unit 9: Trees for Life; Unit 10: Treading Lightly); Managing Resources (Unit 11: Making Sense; Unit 12: Going Green; Unit 13: Down the Gurgler; Unit 14: Resources, Not Rubbish; Unit 15: Saline Solutions; Unit 16: Eyes in the Sky; Unit 17: Where Does Your Water Come From?; Unit 18: Splash!; Unit 19: What's Bugging Your Water?; Unit 20: Wonderful Water!); and Time and Change (Unit 21: Message to the Future; Unit 22: About Town; Unit 23: Inventive Aussies; Unit 24: Down by the River; Unit 25: Cruisin' Down the River; Unit 26: Changing Landscapes; Unit 27: Know Your Neighbors; Unit 28: Heritage Trail; Unit 29: Biodiversity; Unit 30: Agenda 21).
