The purpose of environment course is to give the students awareness on the status of natural
resources, delicate ecosystem balance, pollution issues and the social issues related to
environment and make them committed to the cause of the environment. These objectives could
be achieved, when the teachers employ teaching methods that shift the focus from the teacher to
the student. The Learner- Centered Instruction Manual for Environmental Education is an
excellent guide for the learner-centered approach in environmental education.
The manual includes six chapters; Multidisciplinary nature of environmental education and
environmental principles, Natural resources, Ecosystem, Biodiversity and conservation, Pollution

140 activities, which include field survey, interview, designed exercises, games, role plays,
group work, posters, panel discussion, press conference, drawings, demonstrations, case studies,
video clippings and so on.
