The Ocean Literacy movement began in the U.S. in the early 2000s, and has recently become an international effort. The focus on marine environmental issues and marine education is increasing, and yet it has been difficult to show progress of the ocean literacy movement, in part, because no widely adopted measurement tool exists. The International…

Szczytko, Rachel; Stevenson, Kathryn; Peterson, M. Nils; Nietfeld, John; Strnad, Renee L. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Environmental education (EE) practitioners struggle to consistently and rigorously evaluate their programs, particularly when little time is available for evaluation. Since environmental literacy (EL) is the goal of environmental education, a very short EL instrument -- amenable to use when longer tests are not practical for practitioners -- would…

Gould, Rachelle K.; Ardoin, Nicole M.; Thomsen, Jennifer M.; Wyman Roth, Noelle – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Decades of research emphasize that information alone rarely influences environmental behavior. We addressed the question of, "what, then, does influence environmental behavior?" by asking more specifically: what factors mediate the relationship between learning about environmentally related issues and engaging in environmentally related…

The complex environmental challenges humanity faces require citizens who are scientifically and environmentally literate. Many environmental education programs are situated in the field where students are immersed in their learning. These field-based activities are engaging but may lack opportunities for students to develop critical thinking and…

New nature writing has been gaining popularity in the English-speaking world. Using participant observation of a book group, this article finds that reading such ecological writing can facilitate reader shifts in perceptions and the valuing of non-human organisms and the more-than-human world. Shifts are enabled when readers experience reading as…
