- Engage and Inspire Students: Integrating Standards and Environmental Literacy
Join Delaware Sea Grant, Delaware Nature Society, and Stroud Water Research Center for a one-day workshop for classroom teachers, school administrators, and other education partners to learn an exciting way to engage your students in local place-based problem-solving that integrates stewardship and civic action while meeting state standards for social studies, language arts, math, science, technology, and career awareness.
Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) are learner-centered experiences focused on investigating issues in their local environment that lead students to informed action and civic engagement. In this workshop, participants will learn how MWEEs can enrich classroom instruction, connect students to their local community, and increase standards-based student achievement.
