Problematizing Nature Experience in Environmental Education: The Interrelationship of Experience and Story.
Russell, Constance L.
Journal of Experiential Education, v22 n3 p123-28,137 Dec 1999
The stories we tell ourselves about nature and human/nature relationships influence which nature experiences we seek out and our interpretations of such experiences. In turn, these experiences reinforce or disrupt our stories. Since nature experiences are interpreted in multiple ways, environmental educators should move away from the linear model in which nature experiences necessarily transform attitudes.
