This is one in a series of posts presenting sample elements of a possible proposal. In their illustrative details, its contents are both fictional and factual; however, its overall approach has won grants for similar purposes.


Resources. Each Watershed Education model curriculum will have abundant materials. They will include extensive curricular implementation guidelines; detailed lesson plans; master lists of key concepts and skills; water sampling, analysis, and reporting protocols; and/or field and/or lab work kits. In addition, partners will offer for local use several portable, working models of stream ecology and stream hydrology. Model curricular units will focus on watershed habitats and ecosystems. They will support inclusion of English language learners and students with disabilities. Adaptable activities will accommodate students with special needs.


Lessons will be designed to occur in the classroom, in school labs, and/or in informal outdoor settings. They will be experiential, interdisciplinary, interactive, and applied and they will incorporate state and national standards, higher order thinking skills, and links to real-world concerns in inquiry-based environmental investigations. The classroom, field, and lab experiences will take students from concrete experiences to abstract concepts and will engage them in the physical reality of their immediate environments.
