Environmental Education Inservice Training Packet for the Intermediate Level.
Upper Mississippi River ECO-Center, Thomson, IL.
The inservice teacher training packet, developed with help from the environmental education program of the Upper Mississippi River ECO-Center, is designed to help intermediate-level teachers develop teaching skills which will enable them to introduce environmental or outdoor education to their students and develop those concepts, attitudes, and behavioral skills which lead to environmental responsibility. Reflecting the need for environmentalization on many instructional levels, the flexible one or two day program includes sections which focus on environmental awareness, classroom activities, school site activities, field trips, and community resources. The many activities in these sections can be adapted for class use with little or no change, and the activity descriptions usually include objectives, instructional levels, and materials lists. The interdisciplinary approach involves group and individual activities such as role playing, values clarification, games, home and school environmental surveys, career visits, art projects, science projects, and environmental observation. The packet also includes a sample inservice program schedule, a section on developing an environmental education program, references, equipment lists, field trip materials, resources, and an awareness test.
