How do I connect with others doing Environmental Education?
Environmental education is an inherently collaborative endeavor. Opportunities for networking and sharing ideas exist within the school, within the district and within the community. Working with other teachers or community educators can help build confidence in teaching environmental education. Shadowing, modeling and mentoring with these expert teachers, nonformal providers or other community resources can provide teachers with the tools, techniques and confidence they need to implement environmental education in the classroom.
Concrete learning in authentic or natural settings helps students see interrelationships, form place-based connections and makes learning relevant. As a result, it is critical that teachers work with other teachers, nonformal educators and partners to create environmental education experiences that enhance the school and classroom curriculum rather than merely supplement it.
