Submitted by mpengilly on Fri, 2017-06-23 00:00
Happy Friday, digi-adventurers!
Today we’ll be staying in Coeur d’Alene covering urban water issues. We’ll start the morning talking about stormwater and stenciling storm drains. (Have you tried incorporating any service learning projects in your classrooms? Do you think it increases student engagement?)
Next, Barb Mueller of Gizmo Coeur d’Alene will show us some remote-operated underwater vehicles. Gizmo CDA is using these vehicles to monitor water quality in local lakes and they are looking for ways to involve students! We’ll kayak along the Spokane River and around Blackwell Island, then eat lunch at the Gathering Gardens. We’ll spend the afternoon catching up on blogging (so be sure to check back!) and debriefing on the week.
Here is your final assignment for the week (this is required)- please answer the following questions, either in a blog post, a flipgrid video, or an email to me. This can be brief and should be submitted by Friday, June 30 at the latest... (but why wait?!)
- What were some new things you learned this week?
- Based on the lessons throughout the workshop, how would you teach your students about social ecological systems?
- Which theme(s) of the week were the most applicable to your classroom? (Habitat restoration, mining, timber, fire management, cutthroat trout, water quality, indigenous knowledge, stormwater, etc.)
- How can you incorporate more place-based lessons into your curriculum?
Thanks for following along this week!
