The Earth is our home: Children caring for the environment
Edited by J. Hoot and J. Szente
Association for Childhood Education
If we are to create a brighter future, the world’s children must understand their role in safeguarding and improving the environment. Teachers have the potential to create future generations of responsible citizens. However, test-obsessed societies appear to offer decreasing opportunities for teaching anything except language and math skills. The purpose of this volume is to assist teachers in dealing with environmental concerns within the scope of the existing school curricula, rather than in addition to it.
