School Learning Materials on Water Problems of New Mexico and the Southwest
The product of this study is a set of mediated learning packages based upon water problems of New Mexico and the dry regions of the Southwest. The learning materials were prepared and field tested for use at three levels: Elementary (grades 3-6), Secondary (grades 7-12), and Adult (teachers and mature students). Each learning package is composed of a set of color slides, an accompanying tape recording, a copy of the tape script, and suggestions for educational use.
The learning packages were based upon the results of school testing of both knowledge and attitudes concerning the most important water problems of New Mexico, as identified by the Citizens’ Conference on Water, 1971. Learning gains and positive involvement of learners resulted from the utilization of the learning packages.
The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute is the principal distributor of the learning materials produced.
