Environmental Education and Educational Achievement: Promising Programs and Resources
National Environmental Education & Training Foundation
This report is intended as an introductory guide for those new to the environmental education field and the larger educational benefits it has to offer. The first part of the report includes ten accounts of programs and schools that have met with success by incorporating environmental education into their educational programming. For readers whose interest is piqued by these stories of success and who would like to learn more, a listing of contacts and resources is set out in the second, "at a glance," part of the report. The ten case accounts illustrate particularly promising strategies and practices for integrating environmental education (EE) into educational settings. The stories include EE programs that incorporate elements of service-learning, comprehensive school reform, after-school, project-based learning, science integrated across the curriculum, and arts education. Many of the schools described have been transformed by their commitment to EE, with positive impacts ranging from improved discipline to greater parental involvement to greater success in meeting standards. A bibliography and a list of resources are included.
