Though the teacher had never done an open-ended inquiry around water issues before, she had seen herself in the role of "guide on the side" for years and she was able to adapt the MEECS curriculum resources to her classes' particular project, the school's unique "place," and the powerful student questions that arose from place-based exploration.
Tracey used curriculum materials and strategies from MEECS (family water use surveys, handouts on macroinvertibrate identification, and so on), and invited a guest speaker from the Huron River Watershed Council (a community organization that she already had a relationship with and that had been involved in the planning process that launched SEMIS) to teach about the watershed.
Tracey has most recently reflected that other teachers at her grade level should have access to the MEECS curriculum, just like she had.
