A Framework for Teaching, Learning, and Assessing Environmental Issues
McKeown-Ice, Rosalyn; Dendinger, Roger
Journal of Geography, v107 n4-5 p161-166 Jul 2008
A twelve-question framework for teaching, learning, and assessing environmental issues was created through analysis of environmental textbooks and interviews with professors and researchers who specialize in the environment. Concepts in the framework include: causes, scale, spatial distribution, longevity, consequences, risks, economic implications, solutions, obstacles, social values, stakeholders, political status, behavior changes, and personal actions. The twelve-question framework was submitted to a validity panel of geographers. Statistical analysis of responses from the panel indicates that the framework is valid. (Contains 3 notes and 4 tables.)
