Excellence in Environmental Education - Guidelines for Learning (K-12)
(revised 2010) offers a vision of environmental education and promotes progress toward sustaining a healthy environment and quality of life.

The Guidelines are organized into four strands, each of which represents a broad aspect of environmental education and its goal of environmental literacy. To help you use the Guidelines most effectively, this document, Excellence in Environmental Education - Guidelines for Learning (K-12) Executive Summary and Self Assessment Tool, has been developed. It provides you with:

•   An overview of the four strands and how concepts/skills develop across the grade levels (4th, 8th, and 12th);
•   A set of self assessment checklists for analyzing the degree to which your various curricula and educational programs may meet the Guidelines.

Although the Executive Summary and the Self Assessment Tool can be used separately, they were designed to be used together as a means of gaining a general understanding of the Guidelines and how they can help you develop a comprehensive, cohesive environmental education program.

The Executive Summary can be used as an easy reference to Excellence in Environmental Education—Guidelines for Learning (K-12). As in the full document, the Executive Summary is organized into four strands, each of which is further delineated by a set of guidelines that describe a level of skill or knowledge appropriate for each of three grade levels – fourth, eighth, and twelfth. In the Executive Summary, guidelines for a particular strand are arranged on two page layouts, so that the user can quickly understand the flow of guidelines at a grade level or compare how guidelines progress across the grade levels. It should be remembered that the Executive Summary is designed to provide only an overview. For a more in-depth view of the strands and their guidelines, it will be necessary to refer to Excellence in Environmental Education - Guidelines for Learning (K-12).
