Clinch River News!
Environmental Education Curriculum Guide
The CRVI Environmental Education Action Team, in partnership with Friends of Southwest Virginia and with funding by the Virginia Environmental Endowment, has produced a curriculum guide for educators across the Clinch River Valley and beyond. Teach The Clinch takes both newly-developed and “tried and true” science curricula and adapts them to the Clinch River Valley, using the watershed’s unique organisms and ecosystems to introduce broader scientific concepts to students. Teach The Clinch was composed by Carol Doss and Christopher Anama-Green with guidance from action team members and provides curricula that can be used both in K-12 educators’ classrooms and at the new Clinch River Ecological Center in St. Paul. The guide is free and can be viewed and downloaded at http://teachtheclinch.com
The class will be held on Mondays from March 6th to April 25th at Bluefield College from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. This class will provide an in-depth study of how to run and operate a camera, study on air talent training for news reporters and anchors, and study directing and acting for film and television. Students will also learn how to run and manage a film set as a director and all the different roles involved in creating a movie or television. This course will be $75 and instructed by Blake Stowers.
