Title: Man's Impact on the Environment: The Freshwater Marsh as an Ecosystem

URL: http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED106078.pdf

Description: This teaching guide deals with the ecological composition of a marsh and the ecological effects certain changes might have on a marsh. This study focuses on the fresh water marsh found in the Florida Everglades which can furnish the student with several examples of past, present, and possible future ecological changes which impact this ecosystem. The study is developed around eight basic inquiry questions about change in the ecosystem of a marsh, which are accompanied by a series of learning activities. No one activity will answer all of the questions; however, completion of all investigations should provide the student with sufficient data on which he can develop tentative conclusions. The student learning activities have been designed into a role-playing simulation entitled"The Everglades Survival Game." The guide is divided into three sections. The inquiry questions, section one, outlines the activities for the simulation game and includes learning activities, resources, evaluation, and teacher suggestions. The student materials, section two, are statements, background information or activities which are used in the game. The teacher comments, section three, introduces role playing, and provides an overview of the game, game roles, game rules, and materials needed for the game. (TK)

Title: Phoenix Indian School. Oversight Hearings on Phoenix Indian School before the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. House of Representatives, One Hundredth Congress, First Session (Phoenix, AZ, February 13, 1987; Washington, DC, July 30, 1987). Access ERIC: FullText

URL: http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED330500.pdf

Description: Since 1891, Phoenix Indian High School has served as a boarding school for Indian students. In February 1987, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) recommended that the school be closed, and that students be transferred to Sherman Indian School in Riverside, California. Congressional hearings in February and July 1987 received testimony on this proposal and on several plans for disposition of the federal land involved, about 100 acres of valuable real estate within the city of Phoenix. A BIA spokesman cited declining enrollment and further declines expected after the opening of two new reservation secondary schools as justification for the closure, and provided data on student, program, and school characteristics at Phoenix and Sherman schools. Representatives of Arizona tribes and the Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona (ITCA) testified that there are only five reservation high schools in Arizona, and that Phoenix Indian High School provides needed educational resources for Arizona's Indian students, particularly special needs students. In the event of closure, ITCA submitted a plan whereby property disposal would provide educational funds for Indian students. Collier Enterprises explained its proposal to trade 145,000 acres of its land in the Florida Everglades ecosystem for the Phoenix land. Phelps Dodge Development Corporation described its offer to trade 311,000 acres of Southwest wilderness and archeological sites for the Phoenix land. Conservation groups and environmental, wildlife, and archeological experts discussed the two proposed land exchanges. The city of Phoenix and the Veterans Administration presented their plans for development of the land. (SV)

Title: The Mediating Role of Scientific Tools for Elementary School Students Learning about the Everglades in the Field and Classroom Access ERIC: FullText

URL: http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/EJ990527.pdf

Description: There has been an increased use of authentic practices in both science and environmental education in recent years. Such practices can utilize social constructivist frameworks to consider the learning that may be taking place as students become engaged in tool use. The current study focuses on a group of elementary school students studying the Everglades in the field and in a classroom setting during one academic year. In particular, we observed students' use of tools (identified as tool-conventions to include both artifacts and conventions) and compared their use in both settings. We found that in the field, students spent considerable amount of time engaged in data collection activity such as taking observations and measurements that resembled what scientists might be doing and included the invention of new tools to facilitate data gathering. In this context, students generally worked more independently from the teacher, collaborated in small work groups, and engaged in more self-directed inquiry. In the classroom, while some of the scientific field tools were practiced in anticipation of their use in the field, activity included more teacher direction, often resembling what might be found in other types of classroom work and the tools used there often supported this work. Models of tool use based on Yrjo Engestrom's activity approach were constructed for both settings. Implications of the results include the importance of viewing tool use in authentic learning with a sociocultural and activity perspective to reflect the socially constructed nature of such learning. (Contains 5 figures, 1 table, and 3 endnotes.)
