Lessons in Curriculum from Aldo Leopold's Education
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Using archival data, Leopold’s secondary curricula at Burlington Iowa High School and The Lawrenceville (New Jersey) School are analyzed for knowledge and skills that are relevant to environmental educators. A list of literary and scientific texts was used to survey current students in colleges and universities to determine to what extent, if any, they have been included in contemporary curricula for environmental literacy. Specific recommendations are made for environmental educators.
