Ruth Hoff: Environmental Justice and Freshwater Resources — Spanish Adaptation at Wittenberg University. I used this module in a half-semester, intermediate Spanish course called "El mundo físico" which covers geography and environmental issues of the Spanish-speaking world. The course is one of a series of our regularly taught 200-level Spanish courses which are content-driven, focusing on topics from a range of disciplines. The course was conducted entirely in Spanish, and classes varied in size from 8 to 17 students. Most of these students were on the front end of their coursework toward completing a major or minor in Spanish.
For examples of how the original, English-language version of this module was used at a variety of institutions, see Instructor Stories from the the original version of the Environmental Justice and Freshwater Resources module.

Assessing the Impact of InTeGrate Materials in Introductory Environmental Science and Botany Courses
Aug 31 2017 Using InTeGrate modules in an Introduction to Environmental Science course since the Spring of 2016 has resulted in measurable gains in student achievement in objectives related to soils, agriculture, mining, climate change, among other topics. Utilizing the QUBES InTeGrate Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) in Spring 2016 was invaluable for guidance with modifying and launching the initial modules used in the course: 'A Growing Concern' and 'Soils, Systems, and Society.' Additional modules were added in the Fall of 2016 to strengthen the course and implementations of previous modules were improved. Recent experiences as a co-mentor for QUBES InTeGrate FMN in Spring 2017, has led to new depths of reflection, additional modules utilized, and new courses employed. Student feedback and results of assessments will be shared as part of the session.
