Environmental Problem Solving: Theory, Practice and Possibilities in Environmental Education.
Bardwell, Lisa V., Ed.; And Others
This monograph is a resource for educators who wish to explore environmental problem solving. It consists of five parts. Chapter 1 presents a psychological perspective on problem solving and its implications for teaching problem solving skills in an interdisciplinary arena. Chapter 2 presents four approaches to developing environmental problem solving abilities developed by several environmental education practitioners and researchers in North America and Australia. The editors' commentary ties these models to the themes raised in Chapter 1. Chapter 3 is a discussion of some of the common strands in the experiences of environmental education practitioners. Members of the North American Association for Environmental Education contributed to this analysis, which also parallels the themes raised in the first chapter. Chapter 4 provides classroom activities that teachers could use to supplement their exploration of local environmental issues. The Appendix contains descriptions of the programs used to compile Chapter 3. (JRH)
