Gallagher, James Joseph; And Others
The overall goals of this project, held at Governors State University in Illinois, were to upgrade knowledge of all aspects of environmental problems; to increase knowledge of and skill in the use of environmental strategies and materials; and to enhance knowledge and skill in leadership roles. A number of behavioral objectives were also identified. The project was organized into ten workshops held in and around the Chicago area. Workshop topics included ecology, simulations, energy, and economics. Each of the ten workshops are described in detail in the book. The following information is provided for each workshop: (1) an overview, (2) objectives, (3) some suggested activities, (4) suggested evaluation ideas, and (5) resources. Also reported is a short chronicle of district environmental education programs provided by each participant. Evaluation of the project was based on pre- and posttests of attitudes toward teaching strategies, posttests on environmental attitudes given to experimental and control groups, individual written evaluations of each workshop, and a log. Appendices include the workshop evaluation sheet, the Illinois state plan for environmental education, advisory board members, and a list of games. (MA)
