    I am excited to learn what other educators are doing to integrate the sustainability of our Great Lakes into their curriculum. I am a 6th grade ELA teacher. Two years ago, I created an alternate NYS Module 3b, Unit 3, which also incorporates learning standards from Module 4, Unit 3, where students research various issues that impact the sustainability of our world’s bodies of water. We then hold a World Oceans Day event, open to parents and the public, to raise awareness and advocate for preventive measures critical to decreasing human degradation of our waters. We also work with Save the River on the St. Lawrence to highlight issues affecting our own Great lakes and rivers.
