A Statement on the Need for Marine and Aquatic Education to Inform Americans About the World of Water.
Goodwin, Harold L.; Schaadt, James G.
In this publication, the rationale for marine and aquatic education is developed, and marine education as a part of environmental education is defined. Suggested goals of marine and aquatic education that parallel the goals of environmental education, as given by Stapp (1969), are presented. Some of the assumptions of this statement are discussed and recommendations for the development of marine and aquatic education are also presented along with some concluding remarks. The authors reiterate that this statement is not a program or the proposal of a method, but simply a statement on the need for marine and aquatic education. A section of the document is given to the resource, transportation, and historical reasons for marine and aquatic education. Appendices include a description of how the statement was developed, a conceptual scheme for studies of aquatic environments, and a bibliography. (MR)
