On Being a Master Planner - A Step by Step Guide. From a Nationwide Study of Environmental Education Planning.
Rocchio, Richard; Lee, Eve
This guide demonstrates a new way of utilizing the planning process within a social movement context in view of developing a state master plan for environmental education. In addition the book serves as a guide to realistic planning, including models, definitions, and examples. The guide contains five parts: Part One - The background, Part Two - Pre-planning, Part Three - The planning process, Part Four - Making it Happen, and Part Five - State of the art. Part One traces the history and presents a short summary of the status of state master planning for environmental education. A discussion of the Environmental Education Act and a list of environmental education actions by each state are included. Part Two directs the planner's attention to some issues that should be considered prior to any attempt to launch a planning effort in environmental education. Part Three covers the "what" and "why" of a goal-referenced system of planning. The five chapters in this section cover the development of a planning model, assessment, goals and objectives, strategies for meeting goals, and evaluation procedures. Part Four is devoted to explaining step by step the procedure one might follow in undertaking an environmental education planning effort. Part Five contains a discussion of the present state of the art of environmental education and some directions for the future including examples of implementation evidence. Six appendices are included. (TK)
