The EIC Model™
Environment as an Integrating Context for improving student learning
BooksEducation and the Environment Creating Standards-Based Programs in Schools and Districts
In this timely book, curriculum expert Gerald A. Lieberman provides an innovative guide to creating and implementing environment-based education, a new type of education that combines standards-based lessons on English language arts, math, history, and science with community-based investigations and environmental service-learning projects.
