Environmental Education: A Delineation of Substantive Structure.
Harvey, Gary D.
This study was concerned with two things: (1) to determine whether a generally accepted definition of environmental education was extant; and (2) to determine whether a generally accepted substantive structure of environmental education was extant. It was determined that no single generally accepted definition was extant. The key words and phrases used most frequently were synthesized into a mediating definition of environmental education. It was also determined that a generally accepted substantive structure for environmental education was not extant in the literature. It was the author's opinion that a structure could be constructed utilizing the components of philosophy, precept, and expected outcome. Criticisms of the past literature were identified. Paradigms were designed to illustrate the structures identified. (RH)
