Product description

In this timely book, curriculum expert Gerald A. Lieberman provides an innovative guide to creating and implementing a new type of environmental education that combines standards-based lessons on English language arts, math, history, and science with community investigations and service learning projects. By connecting academic content with local investigations, environmental study becomes not simply another thing added to the classroom schedule but an engaging, thought-provoking context for learning multiple subjects. The projects outlined in the book further students' understanding of the way human and natural "systems" interact locally and globally, and provide the next generation with the knowledge necessary for making decisions that will be critical to their future--and ours.
