Teachers and Marine Education: A Survey.
Milkent, Marlene M.; And Others
A survey of Alabama and Mississippi high school science teachers was conducted in the spring of 1979 as an initial step in the Man and the Gulf of Mexico (MGM) marine education project. Most teachers surveyed had little or no formal coursework pertaining to the marine sciences. The teachers felt they did not have adequate knowledge for teaching most marine-related topics. Most familiar topics were rated as highest in importance. A variety of teaching strategies and approaches were identified as suitable for presenting marine education concepts. (Author/BW)
