Excellence in Environmental Education Guidelines

posted Jan 2, 2013, 5:45 PM by Lower Platte North NRD
In early August 2008, the NACEE board voted to adopt the national Excellence in Environmental Education Guidelines for Learning. These guidelines, established by the North American Association for Environmental Education, provide students, parents, educators, policy makers, and the public a set of common, voluntary guidelines for environmental education. The guidelines support state and local environmental education efforts by:
  • Setting expectations for performance and achievement in fourth, eighth, and twelfth grades;
  • Suggesting a framework for effective and comprehensive environmental education programs and curricula;
  • Demonstrating how environmental education can be used to meet standards set by the traditional disciplines and to give students opportunities to synthesize knowledge and experience across disciplines; and
  • Defining the aims of environmental education.
