WOW lessons are designed for infusion into the existing science curriculums for college freshmen and advanced high school students. The lessons use the aquatic environment and real lake data to explore basic science concepts through two different approaches: a directed study ("Studying") and an inquiry ("Investigating") approach. The directed studies allow students to apply and learn concepts through direct, guided experience. The inquiry lessons provide a more open-ended opportunity for students to discover the same concepts. This module was selected as the 2005 Classics Award Winner of the Biology Discipline because it allows students to analyze real environmental data collected in several lakes over long periods of time. In addition the site provides sound pedagogical tools to help the students apply basic scientific concepts to analyze and understand the data.
I viewed the Data Interpretation Lesson which can be adapted for use in biology courses outside of water management. It appears an effective lesson for getting students to think about, analyze, and manipulate data to solve a problem, a core skill for any discipline.
It took some time to learn how to navigate the site, ie it was a little difficult to switch between the "studying" lesson, the "investigating" lesson, the data, and the"teaching" lesson plan

A very thorough and complete study. I will definitely use this in my environmental class.
It does appear as if the editors are updating and keeping information current.
