Virginia Water Educators
This directory was assembled to strengthen and build the network of highly-trained educators throughout Virginia who support formal classroom teachers conducting successful Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. This online directory is the work of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and the Virginia Water Resources Research Center.
This new template is designed to allow each school division in Virginia to create their own Environmental Literacy Plan scaffolded from Pre K- High School. Each school division can choose their own overarching Environmental Literacy Goals, a Multidisciplinary Investigative Issue for each grade level, SOL correlations for the investigations, and preferred partners to help implement the investigations.
Please share this wonderful resource with the schools and school divisions with which you work.
