Water Resources Education Program (WREP)
Essential program elements:
- Interested, dedicated teacher – Teachers will have support from Watershed Council staff to integrate knowledge of environmental issues and watershed concepts into their current curriculum.
- Curriculum Integration– Every effort will be made to integrate into classroom curriculum providing authentic, age appropriate, engaging multi-disciplinary content to address current standards. Each classroom team will have an individualized experience based on interest within the group.
- Learn Local Spectrum/Place Based Education – This program promotes learning from the local community and environment and is the primary resource for the student experience. Learning about local and regional issues creates a connection to community that will foster a stewardship ethic within the team.
- Team Service – Watershed Council education staff will provide a framework of experiences including classroom sessions, support for site experiences, and resource support of a team stewardship project.
- Resource Persons – Provides experience with local resource persons based on team stewardship projects to further strengthen the “Learn Local Spectrum.”
