Published by NAAEE, Guidelines for the Preparation and Professional Development of Environmental Educators
set recommendations about the basic knowledge and abilities educators need to provide high-quality environmental education. The guidelines are designed to apply:
• Within the context of pre-service teacher education programs and environmental education courses offered to students with varied backgrounds such as environmental studies, geography, liberal studies, or natural resources;
• To the professional development of educators who will work in both formal and nonformal educational settings, offering programs at the pre-kindergarten through 12th grade levels; and
• To full-time environmental educators as well as for those for whom environmental education is just one of their responsibilities.
Guidelines for the Preparation and Professional Development of Environmental Educators
outlines the experiences and learning that will help educators deliver instruction that effectively fosters environmental literacy. The guidelines, organized into six themes, provide a mechanism for gauging the quality of pre-service and in-service preparation programs and the abilities of environmental educators working in the field. Instead of offering fixed rules, these guidelines suggest a broad vision—a goal to work toward and a guide for professional and programmatic development.
