RIVER LITERACY PROJECT
The River Literacy Project is an online, Transdisciplinary, Inquiry-based learning project designed to connect children, teachers, classrooms, schools, and communities from around the world.
The basic design idea for the project involves students and teachers around the world in learning and sharing their learnings related to their local rivers.
The RLP guiding question is: How can we help the river find its way for the next 100 years?
The basic theory of action of the project suggests that as students, teachers, classrooms, and communities learn more about their local rivers as well as rivers around the world while engaging in collaborative projects connecting localities to the global community, the world environment will be advanced for the next 100 years.
The theory of action weaves Literacy Learning as a critical focus of the project. Student and teacher development of reading, writing, speaking, mathematical, scientific, historical, cultural, and technological Interest, fluency, and meaning making are central to the project.
It’s time for the River Literacy Project. We invite and call teachers and River learners and experts from around the world to engage and collaborate for the sake of the rivers, the planet and all species that inhabit the planet.
The River Literacy Project will also begin hosting regular zoom web events with special guest speakers every other Thursday at 6:00 pm Pacific Time. The calendar of speakers is in the making.
