A Proposed Plan of Environmental Education for the State of Oregon.
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem.
A proposed plan for environmental education for the State of Oregon, aimed at coordinating existing environmental education programs and implementing new ones, is contained in this document. Five areas of particular concern are emphasized. These include: Program and Curriculum Development, Teacher Training, Educational Facilities, Community Education, and Public Understanding and Support. For each topic, information is provided regarding general objectives, needs within specific areas, what an environmental education program should do, what an individual or group should be able to do as an outcome of an effective program, and recommendations for a state plan of action. Development of these areas is, in part, in direct support of the Oregon Board of Education's Priorities for instruction and management. A large appendix covers existing federal job corps centers in Oregon, an inventory of existing resident outdoor education sites in the state with specific information for each, examples of mini-environmental education facilities, the Portland Public Schools environmental study area plan, criteria for a model resident outdoor school site, and minimum site requirements for a state environmental education center.
