Teachers’ Thinking in Environmental Education

Consciousness and Responsibility

Series:

Paul Hart

The impact and influence of their school experiences and of their teachers on children and their subsequent beliefs and values are unknown. This book attempts to capture what is in the hearts and minds of teachers and mentors as they provide mind-forming experiences for children. In their own voices, teachers describe why the environment is an important component of their educational practice – why it is even more important than traditional school subjects such as science. Conservative moral principles, not unbridled emotions, guide their behavior as responsible professionals who care deeply about children and their future.
