Mrs. Giordano from Bronx NY is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The River Doctors: Water Quality Monitoring

My students need a classroom trip to use hands-on tools to investigate the water quality of the Bronx River.

My Students

"This is my favorite class!" a student exclaims at the end of the first week of classes. It is a compliment to me when my students are engaged with the material.

Our school serves 9-12th graders in a small community setting.

We serve the population of the South Bronx.

We place an emphasis on developing critical thinking through inquiry and project-based instruction. Our goal is to empower young people to solve and resolve, collaborate and create, and develop the intellectual and social skills to become thoughtful and engaged members of their communities.

My Project

The students have a basic understanding of what water is and how essential it is for life. However, I want to have the students dig deeper and see the implications of how we treat the environment. Using hands-on tools, the students will analyze the water quality of the Bronx River.

The Bronx River Alliance trip will be the hands-on inquiry experience the students need to get "hooked" on water.

It will frame the beginning of the water unit in my classroom, allowing for deeper discussions around how the chemical and physical states of the Bronx River have bigger environmental consequences for our community.
