Environmental Service Learning: Outcomes of Innovative Pedagogy in Baja California Sur, Mexico
Schneller, Andrew Jon
Environmental Education Research, v14 n3 p291-307 Jun 2008
This article reports on a longitudinal study of a two-semester middle school environmental learning course that departs from traditional Mexican expository pedagogies through the incorporation of experiential and service learning approaches. In the short term, course participants acquired a heightened awareness of environmental issues, augmented their environmental perceptions and consciousness, and complemented all this with environmentally responsible behaviours. Two years after completing the experiential course, students retained pro-environmental attitudes and behaviours and unexpectedly exhibited an expanded role in intergenerational learning. The research adds to the handful of studies in this cross-disciplinary field through qualitative methodologies that refine our understanding of the outcomes of experiential environmental learning.
