Environmental Education Handbook for Teachers.
Bedwell, Lance, Ed.
In response to the interest in environmental education programs in the schools, the state of Illinois has planned this handbook as a guide for teachers desiring to develop an environmental curriculum or to expand an existing one. The guide presents a rationale for developing such a program, including current environmental education laws and state plans. Six steps are given for organizing an environmental education program and curriculum guidelines to achieve this goal at all grade levels, K-12, are also given. In one section of the handbook, there are sample units covering topics listed in the guidelines and including all grade levels. Another section contains a listing of resources available to teachers developing environmental education programs. The handbook is designed to accommodate supplementary material when it is printed.
