This program for preservice teachers is an outgrowth of a critical need for preparing students to teach environmental subjects in public schools. By using exit criteria, competencies, and behavioral objectives as guides, students help determine their individual academic needs and then plan a self-instructing, self-paced program to meet these needs. Audiovisual-supported modules and project learning experiences in the local community are the principal teaching methods employed. In addition, students participate in a summer Environmental National Encounter Workshop in which they travel from coast to coast as they learn about the total environment. Upon return to campus, students present programs based on their trip experience with community and academic groups and public school students. The main sources of student evaluations are interviews, student presentations, and project reports. Students who are first involved as preservice paraprofessionals later become in-service participants; in this way they continue the learning process after graduation. (Author/JA)
