Teacher as Guide--the Rachel Carson Way. Environmental Education.
Wilson, Ruth
Early Childhood Education Journal, v23 n1 p49-51 Fall 1995
Discusses environmental education, noting that teachers' science backgrounds are not nearly as important as their showing interest in children's experiences and discoveries, respect for environment, and encouragement of close observation of the world. Suggests that to help children understand and appreciate nature, teachers can focus on having fun, expose children to the natural world, and model curiosity. (JW)
