Hello Everyone! I am glad to say that we had a great day at RU IMCS on Tuesday! It was really nice to see that there are still many teachers interested in the incorporation of the Ocean Literacy topics into their curricula. I’d like to start things up again but from a different perspective.
Over the years we have been using the MARE lessons as a key part of a whole school or large format program. Times have shifted and it seems that we have an opportunity to rekindle the incorporation of Ocean Literacy by targeted “mini-lessons” and materials into our classrooms. This can look very different from school to school and from class to class. I think that this would be a great place for us to start. Remember, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel here, just look at our existing curriculum from a different perspective.
How do you envision using Ocean Literacy topics in your classroom or program? I’d really like to know, we heard some great examples from our session on Tuesday but we didn’t get to hear from everyone. Please feel free to chime in and let the community know what you are up to!!
