EETAP Celebrates: Five Years of Advancing Education & Environmental Literacy...and Next Steps.
This publication highlights the accomplishments of the first five years of the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP) in advancing education and environmental literacy. The booklet is user-friendly and summarizes the major activities and impacts made by 18 professionals across the United States. Some of the positive outcomes that resulted from the organization are discussed. Professional guidelines for environmental education materials, learning, and teacher preparation were developed and are now in the hands of 50,000 education professionals. Several national environmental education curricula were correlated to learning strands in 18 states. One thousand state and local education community leaders received organizational and leadership training to build sustainable environmental education programs. Educator training and outreach materials were adapted to better meet the needs of audiences that in the past have had little access to environmental education. Access to environmental education materials and resources was also enhanced through the development of several electronic communication tools such as an environmental education Web site. (SAH)
