Teaching Resources from the Environmental Literacy Council

The Environmental Literacy Council: Teaching Resources [pdf]

“Environmental science encompasses a number of fields within the natural sciences, and an interdisciplinary approach to the subject is a must. For educators working in this area, the Environmental Literacy Council’s Teaching Resources site will be a real find. On their site, visitors should click on over to one of the sections on the right-hand side of the page. The sections here include ‘General Resources’, ‘Environmental Science Toolkit’, and ‘Survey & Textbook Reviews’. The ‘Environmental Science Toolkit’ is a good place to start, as it contains data table examples, information on creating citations, a guide to important concepts in environmental science, and an experimental design rubric. Additionally, visitors should not miss the Environmental History Modules which help teachers link up fundamental historical concepts to important environmental issues. These modules include ‘War and the Environment’ and ‘Ordinary Landscapes’, and they are both creative and quite engaging for students and teachers.”
