Teachers beginning to go all out for environmental education
ONE OF the things that make a teacher great is their ability to bring the outside world inside the classroom to students, to make them see how their lives are intertwined with what is happening in the world. Students should always be made aware of how their actions affect the world.
Investigative-type projects, where students go out there to interact with nature to find out how it functions, help in this regard. School-based recycling projects have always been popular among teachers and students. This is one of the easiest ways of teaching young children how to care for their environment.
Teachers are beginning to demonstrate teaching skills and innovative use of environmental education that connects students with the world around them in ways that will strengthen their education for years to come. Their lessons are putting creativity and innovation, community engagement and leadership into practice; which teaches students about civic responsibility and environmental stewardship.
Teachers have began to do more than just teach about environmental science and education, but they also go out and live it with their students. Even though the environment is near to teenagers, they do not know what to do about it, so it is good to have teachers who give them the chance to do something.
