Environmental learning and experience framework

The Environmental Learning and Experience (ELE) framework is used by teachers to integrate environmental concepts across K-12 learning outcomes.

The Salmonids in the Classroom resource has connections to all of the principles in the ELE framework.

The framework provides a number of perspectives around which environmentally-focused lessons may be developed and can assist teachers of all subjects and grades to integrate environmental concepts into virtually any teaching and learning. It is also a guide to the possibility of interdisciplinary practice - using the environment as an organizing theme. Central to the ELE Guide are two elements:

  1. Learning Cycle and
  2. Complexity, Aesthetics, Responsibility and Ethics (CARE)

The ELE Curriculum Guide and definitions of the codes are available online at www.bced.gov.bc.ca/environment_ed.
