Engaging Imagination in Ecological Education

Practical Strategies for Teachers

Engaging Imagination in Ecological Education illustrates how to connect students to the natural world and encourage them to care about a more sustainable, ecologically secure planet. Cultivating ecological understanding requires reimagining the human world as part of, not apart from, nature. Describing the key principles of an approach to teaching called Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE), this book offers a practical guide for all teachers (K–12). It is designed for use with any curriculum to give students opportunities to engage their bodies, emotions, and imaginations in the world around them, thereby making learning meaningful.

About the Author

Gillian Judson is a lecturer at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada; one of the directors of the Imaginative Education Research Group (IERG); and coordinator of the Imaginative Ecological Education program (www.ierg.net/iee).

Endorsements

"I know of no other ecologically oriented books that have the immediacy that this one has. Its enormous virtue is that it speaks directly to the students and teachers who will use it."—Clyde Coreil, director of the Center for the Imagination in Language Learning, New Jersey City University
