The 1990s have witnessed an astonishing surge in environmental consciousness. Young men and women evince a keen interest in environmental protection and conservation. Formal education reflects this.
Joy Palmer and Philip Neal, seasoned teachers at the elementary and secondary school level, display what environmental education is, how it can be best employed, taught, and, above all, disseminated to students at all levels. Heads of schools, policy makers, and activists will discover in this book practical ideas for policy and curricular development and implementation. Palmer and Neal provide a comprehensive and annotated list of organizations and institutions germane to the field of environmental pedagogy and draw case studies from an array of settings that allow teachers to obtain a clearer sense of how environmental teaching can and will work for them.
