Students throughout the region now have the opportunity learn about the Great Lakes from kindergarten all the way through their senior year in high school.
The Alliance this summer rolled out our first-ever 9-12 Great Lakes in My World curriculum, a bookend to our widely acclaimed K-8 curriculum that bears the same title.
“There has never been a more important time for students to be aware of the intricate and inextricable ties residents have to their Great Lakes,” said Darci Sanders, director of Education at the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, in endorsing the new curriculum.
Alliance Education Coordinator Katie Larson says the curriculum aims to give high school students a meaningful way to learn scientific, geographic and research skills while learning about the Great Lakes, which comprise a rich, living ecosystem for students of all ages to explore.
The release of the 9-12 curriculum follows the third printing of our K-8 curriculum in 2010. That curriculum was first released in 2005 and reaches more than 25,000 students annually. Both curricula are aligned to Common Core State Standards, as available.
