TEACHING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY - MODEL MY WATERSHED
Research suggest that experiences in the formal secondary science classroom rarely promote a specific event that triggers students to choose earth sciences careers(Houlton, 2010 & Hughes et al., 2007). Through the use of Flanagan’s Critical Incident Technique (CIT) methodology, TES-MMW will analyze student engagement within the curriculum to understand the influence of using scientifically accurate tools and place-based curriculum in study area engagement with earth and environmental science outside the classroom. This study is the first multi-year study to investigate the relationship between the science curriculum and career choice. TES-MMW hopes to activate student’s interest and lead to an increase in the number of Earth and environmental scientist.
