An Environmental Education Plan for Montana.
Jackson, John Y.
The purpose of this dissertation was to develop an environmental education master plan for implementing environmental education programs into the schools of Montana. The process used to develop the plan consisted of the following steps: (1) to examine environmental education plans from other states; (2) to determine what Montana educators felt should be included in an environmental education plan; (3) to conduct interviews with Montana residents currently involved in environmental education programs; (4) to formulate tentative goals and present these to the Ad Hoc Environmental Education Steering Committee; and (5) to conduct two public hearings to allow those receiving the questionnaires the opportunity to react to the proposed goals. Seven goals were proposed, among them were establishment of an environmental education coordinating committee, developing and implementing pre- and in-service environmental education programs for all teachers, and requiring all schools to establish outdoor laboratories. Procedures for the implementation of the goals and priorities for implementation are considered. (TK)
