EE Reference Collection. Selected Articles on Environmental Education: Traditional Perspectives, New Ideas, and Differences of Opinion.
Fairman, Kate, Ed.; And Others
This collection of articles, an EE (Environmental Education) Toolbox resource, provides a context of theory and example to complement the suggestions and activities in the Toolbox Workshop Resource Manual. Section one, "Definitions of EE," describes the scope and context of EE and provides historical background, specific definitions and insight into the comprehensive process involved in teaching EE. Section two, "Integrating EE Into the Classroom," provides an introduction to several ways teachers might integrate EE into existing school curricula and includes essays by teachers who have turned EE topics into interdisciplinary studies or expanded them to include community resources. Section three, "Environmental Education Techniques," presents ideas for applying EE philosophy in the classroom and is concerned with learning issues for teachers (dealing with values and controversy), and ways of helping students approach action taking. Section four, "New Trends in Education," is about ideas and techniques that are transforming education generally. Section five, "Perceptions of EE," presents some of the diversity of opinion surrounding EE goals and techniques. Section six, "Multicultural and Urban EE," discusses the challenges of bringing EE to audiences that have not been effectively included in "traditional" EE efforts. (MKR)
