NCSR Catalog of educational materials (57 items)
NCSR is a national clearinghouse for natural resource curriculum materials used by college faculty and high school science teachers. Materials cover major subject areas of environmental science and natural resources. They include fisheries, forestry, wildlife, fire ecology, wetland ecology and environmental science topics used in college programs.
All instructional materials are provided in a comprehensive classroom-ready format. The materials stress a science-based instruction approach to develop an accurate understanding of the principles of ecosystem-based resource management and sustainability and feature lecture-discussion, laboratory and field-based teaching and learning approaches. Materials are appropriate for science and technical courses.
Guides for developing community-based or place-based instruction for middle and secondary science courses are also available.
All materials have been developed with the support of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program and are available free-of-charge.
