The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education
The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, initiated by the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) in 1993, is addressing what it means to be environmentally literate. The project is taking the lead in establishing guidelines for the development of balanced, scientifically accurate, and comprehensive environmental education programs. It is a multi-year program designed to identify and provide examples of high quality environmental education practice. This site offers access to Environmental Education Materials: Guidelines for Excellence, a publication that provides a set of recommendations for developing and selecting environmental education materials. These guidelines aim to help developers of activity guides, lesson plans, and other instructional materials produce high quality products, and to provide educators with a tool to evaluate the wide array of available environmental education material. Other publications are designed to help educators find curricula, multimedia resources, and other educational materials that can enhance teaching environmental education in a variety of settings. Reviews of specific curriculum guides and educational materials are included.
