摘要(Abstract):

Facing local, national and global environmental challenges it is vital to educate the children with basic environmental challenges through Environmental Education (EE). This will not only build their knowledge regarding environmental challenges but also motivate them towards a pro-environmental behavior and attitude which will ultimately ensure their participation in eliminating and mitigation of such challenges. This goal can be achieved by inculcating EE in the national curriculum at elementary and secondary levels which needs to be modernized by quantity and quality of contents, teaching methodology and evaluation. A study was conducted to explore the inclusion of environmental education in the curriculum at elementary and secondary levels of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. All the textbooks from Grades VI to X were reviewed and analyzed. The study revealed that although considerable quantity of environmental education had been included to address the national and international challenges but there is lack of coherence in subject matter. One common observation in all textbooks is lack of practical involvement of students in all those propositions which could build the psychomotor and affective domain of EE for progressive results. In-service teacher training program of EE can improve the quality teaching methodology and command over subject matter. The role of provincial department of Environment, co-curricular activities, public-private partnership and study tours can boost the knowledge and attitude of students to sustainable environmental development.
