Summary

Based on the inquiry method of learning, this instructional unit attempts to encourage students to discover for themselves the facts, problems, values, conflicts, and potential solutions of an environmental issue. Specifically, it deals with surface mining in the United States, with special focus on surface mining in Illinois. Materials and instructional strategies necessary for actual classroom use are presented, serving as a source of ideas and procedures for the teacher. Although planned for use in high school social studies classes, it may be adapted for other disciplines or integrated into other units. Chapter 1 defines the purpose, importance, significance, and terms of the topic and unit. Chapter 2 provides behavioral objectives, a list of instructional aids included in the unit, introductory activities, activities to provide further information, accumulative activities, and a means of student evaluation. Summary and conclusions are contained in Chapter 3. Appended material includes a list of free materials to send for and ten instructional aids: a questionnaire, test, coal production charts, mining terms, statements by governmental personnel, a slide presentation explanation, conflicting views on strip mining, a bibliography, and two magazine articles.
