Environmental Education Evaluation at the School: An Example in Sao Nicolau Island, Cape Verde
Graziani, Pietro; Cabral, Daniel; Santana, Nelson
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v12 n2 p88-107 2013
Monte Gordo Natural Park (MGNP) is part of the Cape Verde (CV) Protected Areas National Network. In order to create an effective Environmental Education (EE) curriculum, it is crucial to first identify the level of environmental knowledge of both teachers and students. In 2007 we implemented a set of four surveys to students and educators and received 956 responses to create the first local database. Primary students, on average, scored at the reasonable level of knowledge; high school students showed an inadequate level of knowledge; elementary teachers showed a good level of knowledge; and high school science teachers showed a very good level of knowledge. Based on the preliminary results, MGNP wishes to extend this evaluation model to the regional and national levels to create a more comprehensive database for Cape Verde.
