Summary:
[This] supplement designed to accompany Saunders College Publishing environmental textbooks ... is designed to promote grassroots awareness of local environmental issues, problem-solving analysis, and verbal and written discussion of topics that pertain to specific regions of the United States. [It] attempts to present a range of views on [Great Lakes regional environmental issues] in a non-biased approach within limited space constraints. The goal of the manual is to encourage student individual analysis of complex issues which go beyond the scope of the [textbook]. Thought-provoking questions, commentary, and readings have been included to stimulate students to investigate the issue [of Great Lakes regional environment] in further detail beyond the manual's presentation. -T.p. verso.
