Environmental Education: Planning Priorities.
Voelker, Alan M., Ed.
Using the premise that one of society's most pressing educational needs is the preparing of personnel to implement and facilitate environmental education programs in schools, teacher preparation institutions, and other educational agencies, the conference focused on identifying "what to do" and "how to do it." Speakers discussed problems to be encountered in developing and maintaining environmental education programs, as well as how to design approaches for alleviating these problems. Content is divided into five areas: Developing Master Plans for Environmental Education (Planning Guidelines, Federal Planning and Coordination, Action to be Implemented in New Jersey, and Critical Factors); Dimensions of Environmental Education Programs (Curriculum Organization, Environmental Influences on Human Behavior, Human Values, and Education as Environment); Resources for Environmental Education (Allocating Resources, Environmental Management Education, Alternatives for Demonstrating that Mother Earth is a "Crocogator," and The Environmental Science Center); Community Environmental Education (Community Interaction, Environmental Education for the Total Community, The Business Community, and A School and Some Volunteer Organizations); and the Workshop in Retrospect: A Summary (Planning the Program, Guidelines for Curriculum Development, Future Directions, and Community Environmental Education).
