Using Environmental Science Education Curricula and Experiences To Enhance Science Teaching for All Students: Creating an Integrated, Inclusive Learning Environment.
Ramey, Linda K.
This document presents a project that attempts to increase awareness of natural resources and surface and ground water in the Miami Valley region among elementary and middle school teachers and their students. The Miami Valley (Ohio) Environmental Science Education Teacher Enhancement Project Summer Workshop involved 33 teachers investigating a combination of field-based activities, exploration of environmental curricular materials, and the development of integrated units related to water resources and environmental topics. Annual follow-ups and quarterly meetings after the workshop indicate that teachers continued to use the water resource curricular materials in their instructional practices. (YDS)
