Learning Ocean Science through Ocean Exploration

All TEAMS that participate will get a copy of this book of lesson plans.
From bioluminescent corals to deep vent worms, from tropical underwater volcanoes to the Arctic Ocean floor, we know more about the Moon than our ocean. Bring the excitement of current ocean science discoveries to your students using this Ocean Exploration curriculum and a CD-ROM of the Ocean Explorer Web site from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Learning Ocean Science through Ocean Exploration is a newly-developed curriculum for teachers of Grades 6-12 that takes lesson plans that were developed for NOAA Voyages of Discovery and the Ocean Explorer Web Site and presents them in a comprehensive scope and sequence through subject area categories that cut across individual expeditions. Each lesson focuses on an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning and is correlated to the National Science Education Standards (more information)

The workshop and its materials are geared primarily to high school and middle school educators, but should be of interest to informal and formal educators of all levels. The presentations and topics focus on science, history, technology, social studies, and art.
Contact Dr. Bishop to discuss this opportunity and share your ideas.
