Impact of Environmental Education for Guam Schools, An Evaluation.
The 1972 Environmental Education for Guam Schools Project originated from the recognition of a need for environmental education on the island. The ultimate goal was to graduate citizens who were knowledgeable and conscientious about environmental concerns. This report describes and assesses the impact of this project on Guam and provides a source of feedback, a source of suggestions for further improvement, and a vehicle for dissemination of information. The report contains three categories of data--contextual data, program data, and evaluation data. Contextual data concern the economic and demographic factors of the locale and organizational and financial problems of the school system. Program data provide information on personnel, procedures, equipment, training, community involvement, and expenditures. The evaluation data focus on the behavioral objectives and goals, and instruments for measuring them. The final section, Conclusion and Recommendations, notes that the students in pilot schools developed an awareness of the need for, and interest in, preserving the environment. An overview of the curriculum adaptations, and a sample teacher evaluation sheet are included in the appendices. (Author/TK)
