"...developing environmentally conscious students requires more than just exposing the students to information about natural history and ecology--it requires exposing them to values in support of the environment. A Guide on Environmental Values Education
provides a useful plan to help teachers working in both formal and informal settings incorporate a values dimension into their education efforts."

"Of most value to teachers in this manual is a group of environmental values education exercises at the primary level and another at the secondary level. The subjects at the primary level include transportation, solid wastes, energy and pollution. Additional topics at the secondary level include agricultural practices, resource management and lifestyle and environment."

"Michael Caduto's guide rediscovers and affirms some of the ethical, moral and value aspects of our being. Both usable and complete, A Guide on Environmental Values Education
is an important contribution to areas of classroom education that our excessive desires for affluence too often overlook. Uniquely, this book makes room for the validation and growth of students' feelings about their lives' effects upon the global and local life system. It helps bring modern stress under the watchful eyes of classrooms where, in a healthy way, it may be expressed and modified."
