A Guide to Planning and Conducting Environmental Study Area Workshops.
National Park Service (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.
Developed cooperatively by the National Education Association and the National Park Service, this guide may be useful in designing and conducting workshops to help teachers develop environmental education programs using resources to be found outside the school. Specifically, it considers workshop design variables, the design process, workshop content, and workshop outcomes. Design variables include general goals, human and natural resources available, site capabilities, and other factors. The design process gives systematic direction to the designers of the workshop, helping them shape general goals into specific objectives and to select activities based upon sound principles of learning and group interaction. Content encompasses the knowledge, skills, and attitudes the workshop seeks to develop, as well as the issues that come up during the workshop and the procedures involved in implementing the design with real-life people. Outcomes vary according to the design variables, process, and content. Crucial to the outcome are continuing dialogue and follow-up to ensure ongoing commitment to environmental education. Sample materials and forms, charts, and drawings supplement the information together with an appendix of activities and selected references. (BL)
