Maryland Environmental Education Survey. Part One: The Chesapeake Bay as an Integral Part of the Environmental Education Program. Progress Report.
Foster, Oma Ruth
This report is the result of a survey of educators using the Chesapeake Bay in environmental education courses. The goal of the survey was threefold: first, to identify persons using the Bay area in their educational programs; second, to ascertain the level of environmental education programs being offired; and third, to determine the services needed to develop a Chesapeake Bay curriculum. Questionnaires were sent to persons in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania counties located in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Results indicated that study of the Bay was an integral part in the curriculum of the schools bordering the bay and its major tributaries. These environmental education programs were taught mainly through the science departments, at the secondary level. Also, most educators indicated a willingness to use Chesapeake Bay curriculum materials, if developed. (MA)
