Excellence in Environmental Education: Executive Summary and Self Assessment
This is the executive summary from a publication entitled Excellence in Environmental Education - Guidelines for Learning (Pre K-12). This set of guidelines was developed to set a standard for high-quality environmental education in schools across the country, based on what an environmentally literate person should know and be able to do. The Executive Summary and Self Assessment Tool is organized into four strands, each of which is further delineated by a set of guidelines that describe a level of skill or knowledge appropriate for each of three grade levels - fourth, eighth, and twelfth. In the Executive Summary, guidelines for a particular strand are arranged on two page layouts, so that the user can quickly understand the flow of guidelines at a grade level or compare how guidelines progress across the grade levels.
