Strategies for Developing an Environmental Education Curriculum: A Discussion Guide for Unesco Training Workshops on Environmental Education.
Hungerford, Harold R.; Peyton, Robert Ben
Prepared as a basis for environmental education curriculum development, this manual establishes guidelines for curriculum decision-making in any school, community, region or nation. In addition, the current status of environmental education is analyzed, and the character of contemporary curricula and materials development efforts is summarized. Emphasized is the need to establish programs which reach toward involving citizens in addressing environmental problems. A flow chart of the curriculum-implementation-evaluation process serves as a reference for applying the procedures and guidelines presented. These include curriculum patterns, decision-making criteria, multidisciplinary instructional models, and guidelines for teacher preparation. Appended are: (1) model activities based on the described infusion process and curriculum development goals; and (2) a bibliography of materials, programs and issues related to the positions outlined.
