The Environment in question : ethics and global issues by David E Cooper( Book )

19 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces the student to the key environmental debates. By addressing specific global problems and placing them within an ethical context, the collection provides the reader with both a theoretical and practical understanding of environmental issues. The contributors are internationally-known figures drawn from the various disciplines which bear upon these issues, e.g. geography, psychology, social policy and philosophy. The contributors range from those tackling individual concrete issues (such as nuclear waste and the threat to the rain forest) to those addressing matters of policy, principle and attitude (such as our obligations to future generations and the nature of technological risk). The Environment in Question is designed as a text for students of philosophy, environmental science, environmental education, ecology and teacher education. It can be used as an inter-disciplinary, self-contained course book or in conjunction with relevant material.; In addition, as the previously unpublished essays which constitute the volume directly and controversially address current environmental debates in a non-technical manner, it is of great interest both to professionals in those areas and to readers who care about the planet's future. The substantial cross-section of concerns and approaches will enable all readers to develop the necessary level of understanding required to initiate and sustain debate on enviromental issues

Spirit of the environment : religion, value, and environmental concern by David E Cooper( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many people today for whom the most important questions about human beings' relationship to the natural world do not easily fit under such labels as 'scientific', 'ecological', or even 'moral'. For some people, the most central questions belong to religion-such as 'Was nature created by God for our use?', and if so, are there limits to our justifiable use of it? For other, not necessarily religious people, it is nevertheless the spiritual aspects of nature which should be a central dimension of environmental thinking. Spirit of the Environment examines the environmental attitudes of the major religions and on other important traditions of religious thought, such as pantheism. Also, there are chapters on art and nature, nature as a source and object of wonder, the Gaia hypothesis and on non-instrumental values which have inspired environmental concern. The contributors to Spirit of the Environment come from a variety of disciplines including philosophy, comparative religion, education and social anthropology. Some are commentating on religious or spiritual traditions while others propose new ways in which our relationship to nature might be regarded.; Some reflect on central concepts which shape our thinking about that relationship, while others draw on empirical research to challenge familiar views about people's environmental attitudes. Spirit of the Environment is designed as a textbook for courses in environmental studies, education, philosophy and religious studies, where study of the environment is not limited to examining the efficient utilisation of the environment, but includes reflection on nature as the source and object of deep human aspirations.

This book gives an up-to-date and lively account of the cognitive psychology of learning and places it firmly in the context of educational practice. It is a judicious mix of theoretical principles and the application of these principles to practical situations in the classroom. It is, therefore, an ideal text for students, teachers and educationalists alike. Psychology students will also benefit from this book, which emphasizes the practical applications of cognitive psychology. The authors discuss a number of important and topical issues, such as the differences between problem solving, memorizing and understanding, metacognition and motivation, and relate these issues to teaching in the core areas of the curriculum
Topic work in the early years : organising the curriculum for 4- to 8-year-olds by Joy Palmer( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than twenty years, topic work has been accepted as the 'natural' way to teach young children in their first years of school. The introduction of a subject-based curriculum in England and Wales has led to intense questioning of that assured position. Teachers and others are wondering whether the topic approach can fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum and whether in any case it is necessarily the best way of teaching young children. The authors of Topic Work in the Early Years argue that the answer is 'yes' in both cases, although neither this nor any other strategy should be used exclusively in the classroom. With the help of detailed case studies, they give guidance on the planning and assessment of topic work within and across subjects and show how topics can be planned to fulfil specific curricular requirements while retaining the particular virtues of the topic approach
