Kogut, Bethel H., Ed.
Compiled are 52 abstracts of recent master's, doctoral, and major project research in environmental education and communications. Most of the citations included describe work completed in the 1981-82 academic year, although a few abstracts of earlier work have also been included. Abstracts are organized into seven topic areas: (1) site analysis -- descriptions and development plans for areas to be used for environmental education; (2) parks and camps and users/interpreters--studies dealing with park/camp programs, especially user characteristics and interpretive techniques; (3) media communications--examination of effectiveness of various media; (4) pupil-centered studies--research on attitude change, instructional effectiveness, and learning characteristics; (5) teacher-centered studies--research on teacher/interpreter training, attitudes and behavior; (6) citizen-centered studies--research on attitudes, values, and involvement of citizens in environmental problems; and (7) resources, administration, and others--research on environmental education policy, administration, and philosophy and studies not appropriate for other categories. Title, author, and institutional source for the entire thesis/dissertation collection are provided for each abstract. An alphabetical list by state (including Canada) of institutions offering graduate programs in environmental education and communications is also provided. (Author/JN)
