The "Generation Earth" Companion Manual: Your Guide to Environmental Education Replication.
Miller, Tyson; Barrie, Jeff
This manual presents a variety of ideas for environmental education projects that range in duration from two weeks to several years. All of the projects are designed to make learning interesting and relevant to the lives of students by enabling them to develop a sense of connection to their world and a framework that empowers them to make positive contributions to the environment. The manual outlines the projects depicted in the videotape and provides project contacts, state education contacts, fundraising ideas, curricula and other resources. Both the manual and the videotape are divided into three sections: On Campus, Off Campus, and Educating Others. Topics for projects include trash analysis, printing a newspaper, and making a documentary film. The procedure to use when performing environmental audits in school and business settings is explained. (DDR)
