Sourcebook for Watershed Education.
Cole-Misch, Sally; And Others
The Global Rivers Environmental Education Network (GREEN) watershed education program is unique from other water monitoring programs because it emphasizes action-oriented and problem-solving approaches based on an interdisciplinary education and extensive networking with others traveling down a similar path. This sourcebook offers guidance based on years of experience from coordinators of the five regional GREEN watershed education programs. It includes strategies for program development, teaching, and evaluation, as well as learning activities and materials. It also provides strategies for developing sustainable, community-based support networks that help identify community resources to meet program needs. After an introduction, section II provides guidelines for coordinating an overall GREEN program, as a community coordinator, group leader, educator, school administrator, or parent. Section III provides an introduction to the philosophies behind the GREEN approach and the specific steps to coordinate the program at the classroom or individual group level. Practical examples and suggestions as well as a wide variety of lessons, units, and activities are also provided. Appendices contain philosophical and educational strategies, using technology, curriculum matrices, and a list of resources. (JRH)
