Environmental Education: A Resource Handbook.
Heimlich, Joe E.
This collection of essays by various authors draws on resources from a series of "EETAP Resource Library Info Sheets" developed for the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP) by the Ohio State University (OSU) Extension and the OSU School of Natural Resources. Forty Info Sheets are categorized using six major themes intended to serve educators in all disciplines and grade levels in both formal and informal educational settings. The six themes are: (1) defining environmental education; (2) what makes education environmental?; (3) integrating environmental education and formal education; (4) environmental education beyond nature study; (5) infusing environmental education: some models; and (6) resources for environmental education. The collection is designed as a ready reference for educators for understanding and incorporating environmental education into classrooms, curricula and programs, and as a handbook for finding valuable resources for environmental education across the curriculum.
