Environmental Education in the Grade 7-12 Classroom

"From an educational perspective, science learning and environmental understanding effectively complement each other in two ways:

  • The environment context can improve science learning
  • Learning science can improve the ability of students to deal with environmental issues.

Another way of putting this is that studying science in the context of the environment is doubly productive.  It shows how scientific knowledge and ways of thinking, coupled with the process of making decisions about our collective interaction with nature, can illuminate each other to the advantage of both."

-- from: Resources for Environmental Literacy by Environmental Literacy Council, National Science Teachers Association, p.xiii. (2007)
