Teach English, Teach about the Environment: A Resource for Teachers of Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages

Teachers

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed the Teach English, Teach about the Environment curriculum to help you teach English to adult students while introducing basic concepts about the environment and individual environmental responsibility.

The curriculum uses a hands-on, multi-sensory, multi-media approach to show how personal behavior can improve the overall environmental well-being of the family, home, and community. Lesson plans are provided for the beginner, intermediate and advanced student. Each lesson plan has a language as well as an environmental objective.
