“Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.” –Chinese Proverb
-Driven by students questions
-Instructors are coaches, guides, and facilitators
-Students are active, inquiring participants rather than passive observers.
- Students collect, synthesize, and analyze information, then conduct targeted research and work with others to employ that newfound knowledge.
This program is a set of 5 preliminary, sequential, grounding activities to be used as an introduction to a wider more comprehensive and inclusive CTU Stream Explorers program.
A few basic premises provide the underpinning for this program and following them is crucial to its ultimate success;
Activity 1: River Critters
Activity 2: Investigating Macroinvertebrate Behavior
Activity 3: Fish Response to Temperature
Activity 4: Fly Tying
Activity 5: Fishing
Research suggests that preparing today’s students for the workplace requires a learning environment that allows them to explore real-life situations and problems (Levy and Munane, 2004; Partnership for 21st Century Skills, 2004).
