Environmental Education: Module for Pre-Service Training of Science Teachers and Supervisors for Secondary Schools. Environmental Educational Series 7.
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Div. of Science, Technical and Vocational Education.
The International Environmental Education Programme (IEEP) of UNESCO has developed a series of teacher training modules in environmental education. This experimental module focuses on the pre-service training of secondary school science teachers and supervisors. The six chapters of the document address: (1) the environmental problem and education's response; (2) the connections between science education and environmental education (including basic skills in science and environmental education and the relationship of science, society and technology); (3) curriculum tasks in environmental education for science teachers (particularly those relating to environmental problem solving and action strategies); (4) teaching strategies and activities; (5) evaluation of environmental education programs (with regard to societal aspects of science learning and instructional materials); and (6) the implementation of environmental education at both the school building and school district levels. The appendices contain a listing of science concepts of particular importance in environmental education, definitions and aims of environmental education, the declaration of the Tbilisi Intergovernmental Conference on Environmental Education, a description of IEEP, and a bibliography.
