Project Description

Winner of the National Association for Interpretation’s 2012 Media Award, Curriculum Category

Marie developed Our Mississippi: Educational Activities about the Upper Mississippi River for the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Great Rivers Museum in collaboration with a graphic designer with Formations Inc. An ambitious, comprehensive, 350­page educators guide, it included lessons, activities, and assessments that addressed national standards and state standards for Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Subjects included earth science, physical science, social science, language arts, fine arts, and math. Marie planned and led three workshops with educators and stakeholders in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri to identify learning objectives, themes, and subjects valued by formal and informal educators in the five states that border the Upper Mississippi River.
