Environmental Education, Conceptual Curriculum Framework (Tentative).
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
These materials are the result of a summer curriculum development workshop during the summer of 1973. The participants purposely represented several subject disciplines and grade levels to give credence to the philosophy of environmental education as an interdisciplinary study that permeates all areas of the curriculum, kindergarten to grade twelve and beyond. The publication includes a definition and a philosophy of environmental education. The remaining pages contain the conceptual framework developed by the workshop participants. Four major areas are covered: the geosphere, the energysphere, the sociosphere, and the biosphere. The statements following each of these are divided into conceptual schemes, concepts, subconcepts, and principles. These are meant to be used as a guideline to the development of an environmental education curriculum and can be used by teachers to fit their needs. (MA)
