Environmental learning: emotions and values (chapter)

What is it about?

This chapter looks at environmental learning through a lens that focuses on students’ values and emotions. We focus initially on the ways in which students deal with their own emotions and values when undertaking environmental learning activities. We then explore how students’ perceptions of environmental subject matter as value-laden or otherwise can affect their learning. It should be added that while emotions and values are the primary focus of this chapter, they also emerge as part of later discussions concerning relevance (chapter 6) and student-teacher relations (chapter 7).
