Когда ответственность – значит грамотность: о модели развития экологической грамотности школьников
Environmental literacy in the modern world is becoming a trait of an educated person, a necessary element of civic literacy in advanced countries and communities, a condition for successful employment in various sectors of the economy that implement the principles of environmental responsibility. Environmental literacy is a logical component of education for sustainable development, as its attention to the various interactions of various elements of
the environment includes human activities, which are essential to achieve a self-sufficient community that conserves resources for future generations. The proposed article describes a model for environmental literacy development in the context of extracurricular education, based on the concept of ‘environmentally responsible behaviour’. The authors use an approach related to constructivist learning theories, focusing on more active learning strategies
focused on subjective experience and student engagement, the relationship between acquired knowledge and real-world problems. The model can be considered a theoretical basis for the development of extracurricular activities and as a framework for the practical implementation of the development of environmental literacy.
