Linguistic Features of Middle School Environmental Education Texts.
Chenhansa, Suporn; Schleppegrell, Mary
Environmental Education Research, v4 n1 p53-66 Feb 1998
The language used in environmental education texts has linguistic features that affect students' comprehension of concepts and their ability to envision solutions to environmental problems. Findings indicate that features of texts such as abstract nouns and lack of explicit agents impede students' full comprehension of complex issues and obscure causes and solutions to environmental problems. Appendices include analyzed texts. (Author/PVD)
