Series Description
"THE HUMAN COMMUNITY is a junior high life/[environmental science] series composed of fifteen 15-minute programs that embrace aspects of human population growth, use and storage of chemicals, present and future energy sources, and human manipulations of organisms/environment. While addressing established specific instructional objectives, this series introduces students to crucial life science topics, reveals current information, stimulates interest for further individual study, and intends to influence attitudes by broadening perspectives. "The two programs selected for preview are 'Toxic Wastes' and 'Species Modifications'. 'Toxic Wastes' illustrates an innovative approach taken within the series, with a largely [non-narrated] program that depicts the history of a toxic waste dump site. This program was storyboarded scene by scene and precisely created on film, with all original microphotography, time lapse sequences, and re-creations. The dump site at the conclusion of the film was discovered locally and in fact bears the characteristics of a legitimate forgotten toxic dump site.... "A copy of the [teachers' guide] and brochure of the series are included for additional information on the series."--excerpts from 1984 Peabody Awards entry form.
