The publication focuses on how education and the environment can be
linked to advance student learning.
Included are descriptions of schools successfully implementing
environmental education programs and summaries of research documenting
how schools have raised test scores of their students by using the
environment to help teach content in subject areas such as social
studies, science, reading, and mathematics.
The CD (Teaching Standards Naturally) provides a sampler of
43 free EE activities. The activities are linked to different grade
levels and subject areas, making it easy for teachers to choose the ones
that are right for their classroom.
Through the activities teachers will experience how environmental
education helps meet academic standards, boost student learning, and
promote environmental literacy.
