Promoting Student Investigation of Local Environmental Issues through the Southern Highlands Environmental Project: Project Report.
Bousquet, Woodward S.
This report of the Southern Highlands Environmental Project (SHEP) in North Carolina describes its initiation, needs assessment, teacher institute, classroom implementation, outcomes, and dissemination. The purpose of this project was to prepare and support Appalachian teachers in leading their students in investigations of local and regional environmental concerns. The project began with a needs assessment from which a five-day teacher institute was developed. Teachers then assisted their students in investigating local environmental issues with students sharing their work through science fair projects, parent-teacher meetings, or articles in local newspapers. Teachers submitted project reports and, as part of the project evaluation, participated in a two-hour telephone interview. The evaluation documented the implementation and results of the project and demonstrated that the project's basic goals were achieved. Contains 15 references. (DDR)
