Current Issues in Environmental Education and Environmental Studies. Volume VIII. Selected Papers from the Annual Conference of the National Association for Environmental Education (11th, Silver Bay, New York, October 15-20, 1982).
Sacks, Arthur B.; And Others
Provided in three major sections are selected papers presented at the 1982 Conference of the National Association for Environmental Education. The first part contains four invited addresses on environmental issues and two symposium papers related to the Global 2000 Report to the President. Topics of addresses focus on education/citizen participation, acid rain, and the Reagan Administration's environmental policy. The seven essays that follow give the practitioner's perspective on environmental education programs, approaches, and issues. Included in the final section are 14 research and evaluation papers. These are presented in four subsections focusing on: (1) environmental history (Unsung Heroes of the Environmental Movement); (2) environmental education research problems and issues, including an analysis of 10 years of research reported in volumes 3-12 of the Journal of Environmental Education; (3) inservice teacher education; and (4) four additional research/evaluation papers: a summary of arguments against use of values clarification in public education; an investigation of relationships between sex-role identification and degree of environmental concern, knowledge, and personal commitment; technique for facilitating citizen participation; and a discussion of photovoltaics in the soft energy path. Appended is a list of the "Selected Papers" volumes in the "Current Issues" Series. (JN)
