Environmental Science Education Programs: Opportunities for Geographers
Earl, Richard A.; Montalvo, Edris J.; Ross, Amanda R.; Hefty, Eunice
Journal of Geography, v108 n6 p259-268 2009
Environmental agencies in most states have an environmental education Web page that can point geography teachers to a variety of opportunities and resources to enhance their teaching. Most states provide linkages to local and national programs such as Project WET and Project WILD, and access to lesson plans and other teaching materials. A number of state agencies have environmental resource centers, teacher workshops, and grant programs for field trips and class projects. A few states have workshops that provide graduate academic credit and special certification. Much of the content of these programs contributes to fundamental geographic education themes as specified in the 1983 "Guidelines in Geographic Education K-12" and "Geography for Life: National Geography Standards 1994". (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
