Ecological Education in Action: On Weaving Education, Culture, and the Environment.
Smith, Gregory A., Ed.; Williams, Dilafruz R., Ed.
This book explores different facets of emerging forms of educational practice that implicitly recognize the close relationship that exists between human cultures and the environment. The first six chapters describe educational efforts in K-12 schools throughout the North American continent. The second six chapters consider the work of people in higher education and nonformal educational settings and their attempts to instill an ecological perspective into the learning of college students and adult community members. A list of selected programs and resources that address ecological education is included. (WRM)
