Recommended Objectives for Environmental Education

Main Article Content

Jan Činčera

Abstract

The article presents structure and theoretical background of newly-launched curriculum document “The Recommended Objectives for Environmental Education for Elementary Schools”. The text analyzes all the chapters of the document, highlights changes the document brings to contemporary praxis and discusses decisions made by the authors’ group. The document defines goals and content of environmental education for elementary schools. According to it, responsible environmental behaviour is an ultimate aid of environmental education. To achieve this, teachers should focus on five key and five linking topics. The key topics are environmental sensitivity, ecological principles, environmental problems and issues, investigation skills, and action strategies. The linking topics are sense of place, environmental attitudes and values, cooperative skills, internal locus of control, and personal responsibility. The article describes theoretical underpinnings for each of the topics, gives examples of its recommended objectives and strategies, and comments critically all of them.
