This guide is designed to provide assistance and support to school districts for the development of a comprehensive K-12 environmental education program. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of knowledge, attitudes, and skills that would lead to responsible stewardship of the environment. Infusion of environmental topics into all curricular areas is recommended. Major sections include: (1) an introduction to environmental education curriculum development (presenting a rationale and goals); (2) fundamental principles of environmental education content (identifying basic elements of environmental literacy); (3) value development (discussing stages and strategies in value education); (4) teaching and learning approaches (addressing both cognitive and affective domains); (5) the infusion process (explaining step-wise procedures for infusing environmental topics into the existing curriculum); (6) program development (with evaluation considerations); and (7) current issues (discussing controversial topics, computers, and equity factors). Appendices include the Tbilisi Declaration, a list of available resources, three sample infused units, and a list of perceived major threats to environmental quality. (ML)
