Sources of Information about Promising and Exemplary Programs and Materials for Elementary and Secondary Environmental Education

Sources of Information about Promising and Exemplary Programs and Materials for Elementary and Secondary Environmental Education. Information on some possible research reports to look at in this area.

From the site:

Interest in the environment and environmental education has increased during the past two years and will continue to increase as a result of Earth Day 1990. Many school staff and their client communities are considering what they should do as a follow-up to Earth Day and are searching for useful programs and materials.

While new programs and materials are constantly being developed, a variety of programs and materials are currently available. This digest identifies a selection of completed programs and materials completed and under development.

WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGRAM?

There are several publications available to use to determine what should be included in a good environmental education program. Several states including Wisconsin (Engelson, 1986), California, and Minnesota have produced state guides or frameworks suggesting ways of reorganizing environmental education and content, skills, and behaviors to teach.

Several researchers and developers of materials (Roth, Hungerford, and Engelson) have developed recommended frameworks for environmental education. These frameworks have been used both in research and in developed materials.
