Engendering Students’ Positive Attitude to Sustainable Life Style through “Green Biology” Instruction

Stella N. Nwosu


The study investigated the effect of a” Green Biology” instruction, an environmental and sustainability responsive participatory instructional approach on students’ knowledge and altitude to sustainability life style strategies. Three research questions and one hypothesis were used to guide the study. A quasi-experimental research design was used. The sample of 169 Post Basic year one students formed the experimental and control groups. The pre and post tests were conducted on the two groups using a Sustainability Attitude Questionnaire (SSAQ) and the experimental group treated with “Green Biology” instruction.  Data analysis shows the” Green Biology” group showing significantly higher positive attitude towards sustainable life style strategies. It was recommended that seminars and workshops be organized to expose teachers to the “green” approach to instruction as a strategy for engendering sustainable life style in Nigeria youths.
