The Quantum Theory of Environmental Education.
Kirk, John J.
Nature Study, v33 n4 p2-3,16 Dec 1980
Summarizes the origins and development of the conservation/nature study movement and the school camping/outdoor outdoor education movement. The author contends that the juxtaposition and blending of these two philosophies during the late 1960s resulted in a "quantum jump" which led to a new and different educational approach: environmental education. The characteristics and history of the environmental education movement are discussed. (WB)
