The Office of Environmental Education and Public Affairs got a pleasant little suprise in the video of a recent "Teacher of the Week" story from WRAL in Raleigh. Like many teachers across the state, featured teacher Jonita Lee, an eighth-grade science and math teacher at Crossroads Middle School in Benson, uses the North Carolina River Basins materials in her classroom. While these materials are designed for general public education and are used in a variety of ways, many teachers have found them a invaluable resource in meeting the N.C. Standard Course of Study. Watch the clip and you'll see the N.C. River Basins poster, and Lee is teaching about watersheds, wetlands, rivers and river basins; all of which are part of the 8th Grade Standard Course of Study. River Basin materials are also used extensively by Earth and Environmental Science Teachers and in other subject areas.
