The Environmental School.
Menesini, Mario M.
The general purpose of this workbook-guide is to bring common understanding to those concerned with environmental education planning. The information is directed both toward those who have experience in producing environmental education activities, as well as those who have had little or no contact with such programs. The approach is four-fold presenting: (1) an Environmental Awareness Program (EAP), (2) an environmental resource book for teachers, park personnel, and all community agency personnel interested in environmental education, (3) a detailed plan on how to adventure into all the environments - natural, man-made, pristine, or polluted - for relevant educational purposes, and (4) a practical guide to encourage the environmental awareness of children, adolescents, and adults. To this end the EAP uses outdoor areas called Environmental Awareness Sites (EAS) and offers a conceptual framework called "strands" to synthesize the many elements of environmental study. The book can serve as both a checklist and guide for assessing local environmental problems and possibilities and for developing procedures that will help implement an environmental school program.
