A Directory of Projects and Programs in Environmental Education for Elementary and Secondary Schools. Second Edition.
Disinger, John F.; Lee, Beverly M.
The second edition of this directory describes 296 projects and programs which are representative of current environmental education projects and programs in the United States. They cover the gamut of operation and orientation from financially well supported projects to "shoestring" operations conducted by one person in his spare time; from classical nature study to modern urban studies. Thus reflected is the fluidity of definition currently characterizing environmental education, as well as differences in levels of support accorded by various agencies in diversified places. Information accompanying each entry outlines the following: project title, director's name and address, headquarters location and facilities available, principal staff, project history, present commercial affiliations, project objectives, materials produced, materials available free of charge, materials for purchase, additional materials being developed, project implementation, teacher preparation, project evaluation, summary of activities since 1969, plans for the future, and materials available through the ERIC system. Entries are arranged alphabetically by state. In a separate volume (SE 017 299), appendices provide information relating to state coordinators for environmental education, and those projects and programs which sent brief responses or did not respond to the survey questionnaire. See ED 071 881 for the first edition of this directory. (JR)
