The Sourcebook. Learning by Design.
Hershey, John T.; Hershey, Kirk Emerson
Developed as one part of the "Learning by Design" environmental education program, this compilation of resource information and materials serves as a guide to current environmental education projects, curriculum materials, books, people and organizations. Designed as a system rather than a one-time publication, the information in this document will be updated annually through a subscription service. The preface describes the relationship between architects and environmental education, the role of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the entire "Learning by Design" program. Part I, "Models", examines seven exemplary environmental education programs. Each entry includes basic features, program description, historical development, and sample activities. The "Resources" section contains descriptions, representative illustrations and sample activities (when appropriate) for 29 commercially available publications. Part III, "Bibliography," lists 36 annotated entries. The last section, "Networks," provides a listing of people and organizations currently involved in environmental education. Forms are provided for making suggestions for future entries for each of the sections. (DC)
