Water is Life

For year-one of FLOW we have decided to adapt a module called "Water is Life."  This module was written by Expeditionary Learning, an educational organization that "has designed and refined an approach that engages and energizes students, teachers, and district school leaders."  You can read about Expeditionary Learning here:

An overview of the "Water is Life" module can be seen here:

The anchor texts for the module are the article "Water is Life" by Barbara Kingsolver, and the nonfiction novel The Big Thirst by Charles Fishman.  "Water is Life" can be found in its entirety here:

A free sample of The Big Thirst is available on  Amazon:

Woolwich Central School and Bath Middle School faculty will be collaborating to adapt the module to our needs.  This work should be completed by the end of June.  Take a look at the materials to get a sense of what your child will be doing on FLOW.
