At the end of part 1,Marie Story had just refused to answer her students’ questions about why the Colorado River turns blue when it meets the Little Colorado. Here is how she plans to use that observation, or “phenomenon,” to guide her students through a lesson.
Marie Story is one of threeteachers who won an NCSE scholarship to raft the Grand Canyon with our own Steve Newton. She sent us a wonderful essay about her experience. I’m going to share some excerpts from her essay in a bit, but there is so much more about Story I’d like to share with you. I was able to chat with her while she was driving with her family to Idaho to get a better view of the eclipse.
