Abstract

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.
