Education 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.
    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.
