Abstract

This study aims to discover opportunities of inter and trans-disciplinary ecological education in the context of the curriculum. The starting premises:

1.Is the eco-educational dimension taken into consideration when framing the curriculum?

2.Do the manual authors aim towards the introduction of ecological education elements amid the proposed topics?

This way, the school curriculum and the alternative manuals for primary and pre-primary education are going to be analyzed. We will be describing models of ecological education promoted by the curriculum authors, then we will formulate suggestions of educational policies regarding eco-education. The analysis we are about to develop is based on both the quantifying aspects and the those regarding quality, following the extent of: comprehension of forms of ecological education within the curriculum field, models and the values of the promoted type of ecological education. We will be observing the ways of approach in developing study programs for the ecological education: social, procedural and personalized orienting on one hand, whereas on the other one, we will be seeing the methodological manners: conservative, praxiological and exploring-investigational, underlining the methodological models of ecological education within primary education. We will analyze principles that are global, of holistic nature and that occur systematically on which the achievement of the ecological education we are seeking is based, all within a formal setting, emphasizing afterwards the extra curriculum informal setting, tracking the typical ecological education directions: prospects, society, continuity, commencement, all these being materialized through general education directions.
