Students will work along side archaeologists, historians, environmentalists, and biologists, learning how to piece together natural and cultural resources within the region. The program immerses students in real scientific study, analysis, and interpretation, producing real outcomes that can be shared and utilized. The program begins with an in-depth historical analysis of the cultural and natural landscapes surrounding Jamestown and the southern Chesapeake known as the ‘Tidewater.’ Before students visit the area, they will be given assignments, divided into learning teams, and be responsible for an integral part of the research. Each day one team will take the lead, ensuring that all the pertinent data is collected and information is fed to a project website chronicling the study. In addition, afternoons will be spent exploring the environmental and biological components of Chesapeake Bay. Students will explore habitats and participate in testing water quality as part of learning and understanding the natural side of the landscape. This multi-disciplinary approach of a cultural landscape helps students think critically, broaden association of subjects, and grasp the importance of current environmental issues before them.
