Education for Sustainability
In this seminar we will design environmental education (EE) curricula and community service learning projects for use in public schools or in nonformal educational settings such as nature centers and recreation programs. Students will carry out internships in schools or other community settings in Addison County in order to foster both an enhanced sense of place and a broader perspective on environmental issues. Students will study the evolution, goals, and public attitudes towards EE. Guidelines from the North American Association for Environmental Education will be used to analyze, evaluate, and design EE curricula/projects. 3 hr. sem.
