An Educator's Guide to the Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE)

by Chesapeake Bay Program Year Published: 2019

Robust partnerships and programs in our region have created a culture in which systemic environmental education is poised to become the norm and where school districts increasingly promote inquiry-based environmental education as a valid and effective way to spark curiosity, improve student achievement, promote Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) programs, and provide critical life skills. An Educator’s Guide to the Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) is an easy-to-use manual for constructing high-quality educational experiences for all students. Our hope is that this guide is used by teachers and non-formal educators to deepen and strengthen outdoor learning for students throughout the region and that this leads to young citizens who understand and respect our natural world.
