Education and the Environment. Report of a Multi-state Conference, November 8-10, 1971, Annapolis, Maryland.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
With assumptions in mind that the environment has emerged as a legitimate concern of our nation's schools, and that environmental education is interdisciplinary, the Maryland State Department of Education held a meeting for representatives from various parts of the country concerning the possibility of connecting education and the environment. Teams of specialists from eight states met for 3 days with consultants from the National Science Foundation, the Office of Education, and the National Education Association. Before the conference began each state submitted a brief report of what it had done concerning environmental education. During the sessions participants were asked to respond to 3 major objectives by identifying: 1) the contribution of subject areas to a comprehensive program of environmental education; 2) the contribution of interrelated approaches to environmental education; and 3) new strategies of implementation and sources of funding for comprehensive environmental education programs. Responses to these objectives constitute the bulk of the report. Abbreviated versions of each state's report, and a list of conference participants are included. (Author/OPH)
