Schlenker, Richard M.
Rationale, Goals and objectives, grading procedures, methods of instruction and evaluation, and procedures for accomplishing objectives are included in this syllabus for a college course in marine education. The course is designed to provide preservice teachers with introductions to general teaching and marine methodologies; and to meet the needs of four different kinds of students: future marine science teachers, future science teachers with an interest in marine sciences, students wishing a brief introduction into marine education, and students wishing to do varying amounts of work in marine education teaching methods. Flexibility is allowed for the kind of student by completion of certain required objectives and by contract grading. The list of goals and objectives relates to all four types of students and includes designing a one-month unit of pre-college marine science study, accumulating enrichment materials and developing audiovisual and laboratory materials; objectives specific to science teaching are also included. Procedures for accomplishing objectives, listed in the final section of the syllabus, detail methods for smooth accomplishment of objectives. (CS)
