I am excited to share a new resource from the Community Literacy Center at Colorado State University focused on water literacy!
The Writing Water Curriculum Project (WWCP), a curriculum focused on raising awareness about water challenges in Northern Colorado, was developed in 2021-2022 with support from an educational outreach grant from the Colorado Water Center at Colorado State University and in collaboration with interns at the Community Literacy Center. The lesson plans, linked here, are the result of an eighteen-month collaboration between Community Literacy Center staff and local water scholars, field scientists, park managers, artists, and regional business owners. Each is designed for use with a wide range of writers and intend to make accessible and interesting connections between water science and our lives through writing. Many also include virtual field trips in the form of short videos featuring regional waterways and short interviews. These lesson plans are free to download and use. Please share with any groups you think might be interested.
