Curricula Review

The National Review Team Evaluation Process

Youth water education materials are plentiful and vary greatly in content, scope and quality. So, it’s not always easy for educators to choose materials that meet their goals. A National Review Team chose the curricula listed in the Educating Young People About Water database. The Team identified nine key water topics and subtopics to add detail for the process of reviewing the curricula. They also developed lists of instructional formats and environmental education goals to help educators find appropriate choices for their learners. Please note that in reviewing the curricula, the Team only looked at whether these criteria were present in the activities and information; they did not evaluate the quality or relevance to a particular topic.
