Abstract

The goal of our project was to assess environmental attitudes and behaviors of students at Carlos Pascua Zuniga High School specifically focusing on recycling. To achieve this we used observations, interviews, and surveys of students and faculty. Our findings suggest that there are internal and external factors that result in an apathetic student attitude towards recycling. These factors were analyzed in order to create a curricular guide for teachers including our findings, recommendations and activity suggestions.
