View Author Bio
Van Matre, Steve :
Steve Van Matre is the author of Acclimatization, Acclimatizing, Sunship Earth, The Earth Speaks, Earthkeepers, Earth Education... A New Beginning and Sunship III. A former university professor, camp director, youth leader, school teacher, and educational consultant, he now travels the world introducing the earth education alternative to others.
"Perhaps the most creative force in Environmental Education curriculum design is Steve Van Matre, the charismatic leader of The Institute for Earth Education... Earth education immerses learners in ecological systems as the "deep ecology" wing of Environmental Education. Van Matre's work has been replicated planet-wide; his activities form the backbone of many nature center programs."
"With fighting words, Steve Van Matre sallies forth with a comprehensive program for educating all of us.... I recommend that you at least listen to what he has to say, not that he (or I, heh heh) has all the answers, but because I have noticed that most of the effective teachers I know use similar methods. This way of going at things gets results. "
--Ecolog, The Whole Earth Catalog
"Van Matre wants to set professional educators on a new path, an alternative to the pale, weak and demeaning version of environmental education taught in most schools."
--Bill Devall, author of Deep Ecology
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been working for an "enviromental education" firm for a year now. I love the children. I love sharing the beauty and wonder of our planet with them... Still, I had this feeling of dissatisfaction. Why couldn't I get the message to go home with them? ...I didn't know where to begin. Until... I found your book on earth education. Hooray! At last someone not afraid to take a really critical look at what is going on in our environmental education centers. Thank you for explaining so clearly all of my frustrations and giving me some tools to work with."
--Andrea Voss, Sherman Oaks, California
"While reading Earth Education... A New Beginning I have to throw the book down, scream a little, go sweep the floor, have a cup of coffee, and only then can I go back for more. The excitement is too much. "
--Sonya Nikolay, Teacher, Cambridge, Wisconsin
