The Report of a New England Conference on Environmental Education in Adult Basic Education, June 16-18, 1971.
The report describes the process and content of a cooperative regional approach aimed at introducing environmental education into the Adult Basic Education (ABE) curriculum. Tracing the purposes, planning, development, and design of the conference, the document offers need statements developed to serve as a general guide from which to plan positive action programs at the regional, State, and local levels. Teacher education needs, community needs, participant needs and ABE program needs are listed, concluding that: (1) Followup action should be implemented through the establishment of a task force; (2) That local conditions be considered and local in-service teaching institutes planned; (3) ABE environmental education curriculum materials should be developed and distributed; and (4) Federal support should be continued. A list of conference participants and the conference agenda are appended. (MW)
