Oceans: Our Continuing Frontier. A Study Guide for Courses by Newspaper.
Hawkins, Helen S.
This study guide is one of several supplementary materials for a 16-week newspaper course about oceans. Learning objectives are to help students understand the potential value of the sea, major sources of pollution, contribution of marine archaeology to knowledge of ancient civilizations, and the decline in fictional writing about the sea. Content and concepts span the fields of literature, history, law, and marine sciences. Discussion questions promote analysis of controversial issues such as United States government policies regarding offshore oil development. The study guide integrates the themes of newspaper articles and primary source readings from the accompanying materials. Presentation of learning objectives and discussion of key concepts enable students to pursue the course independently as well as in groups. Divisions in the study guide correspond with the six major units in the reader. Each unit in the guide contains a list of appropriate newspaper articles and selections from the reader, learning objectives, overviews of newspaper and reader materials, discussion of key concepts, factual questions, discussion questions, and a bibliography of related books or articles.
