The purpose of this project is to examine how environmental education (EE) can be improved through the application of transformative learning theory and environment-based education (EBE) techniques within conventional classroom curriculua. This paper will explore reasons why EE needs to be expanded within Ontario’s secondary school system, how transformative learning can be promoted within adolescent students, and how EBE techniques can be applied to create more impactful, meaningful experiences for learners. This inquiry includes a series of curriculum planning recommendations which can be used to create more effective EE for students enrolled in conventional classroom-based learning.
