Teachers' Corner

Our goal is to develop a teacher- and student-friendly learning environment. We've designed the following features to help teachers integrate the Water Quality Simulator into the classroom. We'd welcome your feedback!

Lesson Plans

We have worked with a number of teachers in Maryland to develop lesson plans that embody the "Jigsaw" technique. This work is taking place in tandem with field testing. More recent work includes a structured approach integrating graph analysis and conceptual development. Access to an overview and suggestions for such collaborative problem based learning is through the pedagogy link. Access to more structured lessons that have been used in environmental science classes is available through the Lesson Plans link.


Annotated web links to maps, data, and information on watersheds, hydrology, water quality, pollution, indicators, best management practices, and more.
