An Urban Environmental Education Curriculum Guide for a Sixth-Grade Teacher in Irvington.
Dowd, Patricia
The study investigates a strategy for integration of a comprehensive urban environmental education program into an existing school curriculum. It reviews data on the development of environmental education, programs now in operation, and data on the subject community of Irvington, New Jersey. A product of the investigation was the development of a curriculum guide for environmental education for use in the sixth grade classes of the Irvington schools. The curriculum guide supplies background material, lessons, and sources for further research. The study concludes that there is a need for intervening environmental education into existing curricula, a need for preparation by teachers before implementing urban environmental education, and a need for a curriculum that will help students understand their social, physical and cultural interaction with the environment.
