About the Eco-Curriculum Review ProjectWe know that many churches want to provide quality, faith-based educational programming that addresses environmental issues and related theological themes. But we also know that it is hard for local church leaders to find and select those resources.
Simply locating a list of appropriate curricula can be very difficult. (We have been deeply blessed in our research by a listing from the National Council of Churches, and the extensive listing of resources from the "Greening Congregations Handbook" published by Earth Ministry.) The short descriptions of resources that are generally available usually don't provide enough information for folk with busy schedules and small budgets to make informed choices.
The Eco-Curriculum Review from Eco-Justice Ministries is intended to help church leaders research and select the very best resources for programming in their specific setting. Each review provides detailed descriptions of the curriculum materials, and the reviewer's commentary on many important criteria, such as how hard it is to teach, the theological slant of the materials, and the desired educational outcome of the curriculum. (See below for a more extensive list of criteria.)
The reviews -- from an outstanding, international team of educators, pastors, and environmental specialists -- are all based on a standardized evaluation form. The reviews are candid, detailed and comprehensive, and will provide you with vivid descriptions of what each of the resources really offer.
This collection of reviews deals with curriculum materials touching on environmental topics that have been developed for churches. Taking that sentence apart:
As we have developed this database of reviews, we have started with an emphasis on resources that can be used in multiple sessions. As the collection of reviews is expanded, we will be including more "one-shot" materials.
We hope you find this collection of reviews helpful in your ministry. We welcome your comments, and your suggestions for other materials to be added to the reviews.
For any of the listed curricula, the reviews will provide information about:
