Using Natural Settings for Environmental Education: Perceived Benefits and Barriers.
Simmons, Deborah
Journal of Environmental Education, v29 n3 p23-31 Spr 1998
Teachers judged four types of outdoor settings for potential benefits and barriers to their use in environmental education. Factor analysis or responses showed six benefit and barrier factors: (1) appropriateness of teaching setting; (2) teacher confidence; (3) worries; (4) need for training; (5) hazards; and (6) difficulty of teaching environmental education. Deep woods and rivers were seen as more appropriate for teaching than urban nature. (Author/PVD)
