Working With DC Teachers



DCEEC facilitators helping teachers assemble water quality test kits

AWS was happy to work with teachers from several DC public schools as part of their day-long professional development.  We were able to work hand-in-hand with the District Department of the Environment (DDOE) and Earth Force, two of our partners in the DC Environmental Educators Consortium (DCEEC).  Together we discussed tools and strategies for bringing watershed education into classrooms with mapping activities, watershed modeling and water quality testing.  We also began to explore options to bring more local students out to the Anacostia for canoeing or pontoon boating, or to the Anacostia Resources Education Center in Anacostia Park for aquarium tours and fishing lessons.  Teachers from Hart Middle School and Roosevelt High School, to name a few, left the seminar with poster-sized watershed maps, water-quality test kits and half a dozen student-ready lessons.  It was a successful day of networking and facilitating what I’m sure will be some engaging curriculum for many of the District’s students.  I’m looking forward to working with these teachers and their students in the near future. 

If you have a group of teachers or students that might want to get involved in a similar fashion, e-mail me at clemieux@anacostiaws.org.
