This course explores the relevance of EE to the formal education setting, as well as the opportunities the formal setting offers EE. The purpose of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills for providing quality, age-appropriate EE for students in the formal classroom setting. The emphasis is on EE curriculum materials, resources, and programs that can be used with students in settings at or near their schools to support both school curricular and environmental literacy goals. This course takes a lesson-level approach to EE from a non-formal educator perspective, where as EnEd 5855 Programming for Schools uses more of a program-level approach from the perspectives of both formal and non-formal educators.
