Four fact sheets discuss topics of interest to environmental educators. Number one addresses the relative lack of effective evaluation of environmental education programs. It emphasizes the need to base evaluation on identified goals and objectives and cites an accepted goal statement. Two examples of evaluation methods are given as well as suggestions for further reading. Number two discusses different kinds of simulation games, their purpose, basic components and value to environmental education. An extensive reference list is included. Fact sheet number three explains the purpose and advantages of learning activities for environmental education and describes materials prepared by Stapp and Cox; Area Cooperative Educational Services; Upper Mississippi River ECO-Center; the ERIC Clearinghouse for Science, Mathematics and Environmental Education; and others (materials listed and cited in these three fact sheets are available through ERIC). Number four presents generalizations about the characteristics, duties, and responsibilities of the officially designated contact persons for environmental education in state education agencies. Names and addresses for all fifty individuals are listed. A coordinating association for these individuals is also described. (DC)
