Explore Great Lakes Literacy in action
The Great Lakes Literacy Principles serve as a foundation for our education partnerships, programs, and resources. Great Lakes Literacy is an understanding of the Great Lakes’ influences on you and your influence on the Great Lakes.
The Center for Great Lakes Literacy (CGLL) network serves to enhance youth learning, support educators, and foster science and community connections in education. We value teaching and learning practices that include:
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) which are “learner-centered experiences that focus on investigations into local environmental issues leading to informed action and civic engagement.”
- Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) Place-Based Stewardship Education (PBSE) strategies and practices are used to engage youth, educators, scientists, and the local community as learners and valued partners in Great Lakes literacy, environmental stewardship, and community improvement.
