Ripple Effect: Water Literacy Curriculum Central City Green Infrastructure Project

Every New Orleans citizen must graduate high school with basic "water literacy" in order to play a role in shaping the city's infrastructure and urban environment. Teachers, designers, and water experts are working together to develop a growing library of design-based water literacy curriculum. All lessons and units are aligned to rigorous Next Generation Science and Common Core standards. Each unit is conceived and planned as a design challenge, during which students conduct research, develop concepts, test ideas, and present solutions. The project is in its pilot year at KIPP Central City Primary, starting with grades K-4 and expanding to additional schools and grade levels in coming years. http://www.rippleeffectnola.com
