Contained in this report are a variety of materials to help teachers and school administrators understand and develop environmental education curricula. Environmental Education: What is it? What should it be? is the introductory unit. Public statements from eight individuals are presented expressing positions taken on basic issues of the present status and future direction of environmental education. Remarks are extracted from speeches, public hearings, papers, and interviews. Major emphasis is placed on the second unit, a Product Information Supplement of environmental education materials--books and films related to the broad aspects of environmental education. Each notation includes title, author, publication data, physical data, and organization and content information. In addition, organizations, publishers, classroom kits and equipment, periodicals, and information agencies are listed. The final unit investigates three environmental education programs in progress in an attempt to determine why these programs are successful and how they might act as models for the development of other curriculum enrichment programs. These are located in: Theodore Roosevelt Island, Washington, D.C.; Arlington County, Virginia; and Herkimer County, New York. (BL)
