Surveyed Wyoming community: “What do you want our students to know about our state and resources?” Community members responded with the desire for students to become Wyoming citizens who know, care, and act responsibly for our resources and keep us economically strong.
Stakeholders refined survey results and defined key learning concepts. After a public comment period, the Board adopted the recommendations. 2016: Educators from across the state mapped key learning concepts to specific grade levels and drafted initial units for the pilot.
WSP units were piloted, feedback collected, and 2017 workweeks planned.
Educators from across the state revised and drafted a total of 12 units focusing on agriculture, minerals and energy, and outdoor recreation and tourism for grades 2-5 with stewardship as the heart of the lessons.
WSP units were piloted, feedback collected, and 2018 workweeks planned.
Educator workweek addressed feedback and revised current units.
All lessons available as a free resource to Wyoming educators and students through WAIC’s website: www.wyaitc.org.
