Hanselman, David L.; Ennist, Lawrence D., Jr., Ed.
Compiled are 37 abstracts of recent master's, doctoral, and major project research in environmental education and communications. Most of the citations included describe work completed in the 1982-83 academic year. Abstracts are organized into seven topic areas: (1) site analysis--descriptions and development plans for areas to be used for environmental education; (2) parks and camps (users and interpreters)--studies dealing with park and camp programs, especially user characteristics and interpretive techniques; (3) media communications--examinations of the effectiveness of various forms of media; (4) pupil-centered studies--research dealing with student characteristics; (5) teacher-centered studies--research on teacher and interpreter training, attitudes, and behavior; (6) citizen-centered studies--research on attitudes, values, and involvement of citizens in environmental problems; and (7) studies dealing with environmental education policy, administration, and philosophy, as well as some experimental studies which cannot be included in the other categories. Title, author, and institutional source for the entire thesis/dissertation collection are provided for each abstract. An index to entries in previous volumes and an alphabetical list by state (including Canada) of institutions offering graduate programs in environmental education and communications are also provided.
