In the new requirements for general education in Bulgaria from 2015 and in the new curricula in Environmental Science in 1st and 2nd grade, social competence is highlighted as an important element of the formative functions of education.
In the presented model for Environmental Science teaching during the primary stage of education, it is built as a complex perspective in the development of the student, passing through the whole content and technology of the pedagogical progress. The most important features of this model are the enhanced emotional and value related side in determining the goals of education and pedagogical technology based on the proactive participation of the student and sustainable tools of interactive methods and techniques.
The model is set in two school kits consisting of an educational textbook and workbook in Environmental Science – for the 1st and 2nd grade which are currently used in Bulgarian Education.
