Environmental Education in Alabama. A Comprehensive Approach.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
The belief that each citizen should have some understanding of the natural world with its complex balances and should accept responsibility for man's influence upon the world serve as the primise for this report. Suggestions offered for comprehensive planning and a statewide approach to environmental education are made on the basis that Alabama has no coordinated program for environmental education either for students or adults, no statewide curriculum has been developed, nor has a comprehensive adult program been formulated. Consequently, the Alabama Environmental Education Advisory Council has prepared this bulletin emphasizing environmental education in schools and environmental awareness on the part of the public. Topics considered are (1) The Status of Environmental Education, (2) Goals and Objectives of Environmental Education, (3) Environmental Education Curriculum Development, (4) Outdoor Learning Centers: Simple and Complex, (5) Environmental Education Centers, (6) The Role of Higher Education in Environmental Education, (7) Public Awareness, and (8) Resources Available. To provide stimulus for planning, individual projects already underway are briefly noted in the appendix. (BL)
