Environmental degradation is a global phenomenon and it can never be associated to any one particular location in the world. Experts (scientists, technicians, engineers, environmentalist and others) are busy in conducting research and are finding the ways and tools that would ensure the lost balance. Political leaders worldwide also need to throw resources behind their efforts. It requires strong environmental management which should encompasses close monitoring of the whole world i.e., each and every household and industrial activity taking place on the earth. Moreover, there is a need for inculcating environmental consciousness or awareness among the masses: whether young ones or older generation. This is possible through environmental education. It is education which can make the human being conscious and knowledgeable about environment and environmental problems. The main objective of the present study was to study the effect of different teaching strategies on developing the environmental awareness among secondary school students.
