EIC SEERS Vision Statement
Gilbert Middle Schools vision is to incorporate
an environmental educational model in order to
improve student achievement and behavior. By
integrating a curriculum using the environment as
a foundation, students will see relevant and
meaningful connections and assume greater
ownership and interest in their learning. Through
the use of integrated, interdisciplinary
approaches and EIC, the team will foster an
appreciation for the environment and strengthen
the connection between students and the Gilbert
community. Our vision is to create life-long
learners who will serve as good stewards of the
environment.

Focus of Our Investigation The highest
point in all of Lexington County is found in the
town of Gilbert. We know that the targeted
wetland is receiving Non-Point Source Pollution
from the town. We will investigate the current
health of this wetland and determine what can be
done to improve its health so that it will
properly function as a natural filtration system.

Organizing Question How are the social
systems of Gilbert affecting the health of the
wetland?

Supporting Questions What are the
social systems? How are the social systems
impacting the health of the wetland? What is a
healthy wetland? Is the targeted wetland
healthy? What can students do to improve the
health of the wetland? How can the information
