Goals for Curriculum Development in Environmental Education.
Hungerford, Harold R.; And Others
This paper lists goals for curriculum development in environmental education prepared in response to objectives proposed at the Tbilisi Intergovernmental Conference on Environmental Education in 1977. The goals are presented in four levels. In level one, the ecological foundation level, nine conceptual components are presented including individuals and populations, homeostasis, and energy flow. Level two, the conceptual awareness level, presents seven goals to develop a conceptual awareness of how individuals and collective actions may influence the relationship between quality of life and the quality of the environment. Level three, the investigation and evaluation level, provides for the development of the knowledge and skills necessary to permit investigation of environmental issues and evaluation of alternative solutions. Finally, level four, the environmental action skills level, is related to training and application. A list of assumptions made by the developers regarding the goals is also included. (BB)
