The Prepared Practitioner: Groundwater—A Green Issue

by: Alan Colburn

This issue’s theme—“Going Green”—relates to environmental education. In an article published in the Journal of Science Teacher Education, Dickerson and colleagues (2007) discuss issues related to the lack of groundwater education in school science classes. However, as we see aquifers dry up and subsurface waters polluted by urban and rural runoff, the importance of incorporating groundwater as a topic of environmental education becomes obvious. This month's column offers a few strategies to incorporate this important environmental issue into the curriculum.
