Honnold, Julie A. – Journal of Environmental Education, 1984
Distinguishes possible aging, cohort, and period effects, explaining time series differences by age groups in the General Social Survey data. Results indicate that the decline in environmental concern among most age groups can be accounted for by period effects, but an aging effect is important among young adults. (Author/JN)

Simmons, Deborah A. – Journal of Environmental Education, 1989
It is widely accepted among professionals that environmental education should be infused throughout the school curriculum at every grade level. This paper suggests that the failure to infuse environmental education equally throughout the curriculum may be related, in part, to the types of instructional materials available. (Author/CW)

Griffin, Robert J. – Journal of Environmental Education, 1989
Presented are the results of a four-wave panel study to determine the relationship of communication to conservation behaviors. This study found that energy-related content in the mass media bears stronger relationships with the perceived importance of the energy problem than with adoption of energy conservation behavior.
