Open to middle school teachers in Alabama and nearby Mississippi and Florida, this workshop will introduce students to science concepts centered on watersheds, water quality, and oysters and mussels that includes classroom activities, field trips and electronic journaling. Teachers will receive a full Alabama Water Watch water quality testing kit and lesson plans, centered around the Mobile Bay watershed, to implement in their classroom for the 2014-2015 academic year. Field trips to a local water body for testing, as well as on-site visits and video conferencing, will keep teachers and students engaged throughout the year. A return field trip to DISL during the 2014-2015 academic year is also included.
This workshop is an expansion of the November 2013 workshop. Teachers participating during the 2013-2014 academic year who wish to continue with the program will be required to attend this summer workshop, though previous participation is not required to attend.
