Gilbert M. Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education partnership with H2O takes watershed education into the classroom
Expanding the National Geographic Society’s 23-year State Alliance teacher training program is a new video on watershed education produced by the Gilbert M. Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education in partnership with H2O.
The video is part of the successful “Teaching with the Stars” series. Focused on professional development of teachers, videos and associated educational programs are web-based and self-contained. This means the educational units can be used in schools with little added preparation or supervision. Targeted to grades 6 through 9, classroom programs are supplemented with video, demonstration and print materials.
Featured in the video are award winning teachers, demonstrations in real classrooms, and H2O’s Larry McKinney from the Harte Research Institute and Andy Sansom of the River Systems Institute.
