Be a part of the development of a Water Literacy Framework Document, similar to the Earth Science Literacy, Ocean Science Literacy documents comprised of "big ideas and supporting concepts." Such a framework can guide educators, curriculum developers, policy makers, and other stakeholders to work towards a populace where every American understands the basics of water, and is empowered, skilled, and motivated to take action to ensure a sustainable water future. In this workshop panelists will review water literacy research, discuss Project WET's water literacy curriculum and describe best practices in literacy framework development. Participants will contribute to group discussions to brainstorm key ideas that should be included in the Water Literacy Framework and will plan future steps to make this document a reality.

We'll be referring to previously created Earth Science literacy documents, Guidelines for Excellence, and other tools as we develop this new framework.
