Evaluation of a Place-Based Environmental Education Program: From There to Here
Cincera, Jan; Johnson, Bruce; Kovacikova, Silvia
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v14 n3 p178-186 2015
The article introduces a Czech environmental education middle school program focused on helping students develop place attachment to their community and on increasing their interest in natural area in their region. The evaluation applied a mixed approach combining pretesting/posttesting of the students (N = 158), two group interviews with selected students (N = 16), an interview with teachers (N = 2), field observations, and ongoing interviews with the main program leader. Although the evaluation did not find an effect of the program on the attractiveness of the natural area, the program appeared to increase community place attachment of the participants to their own community.
