Coastal Awareness: A Resource Guide for Teachers in Senior High Science. Preprint.
Rasmussen, Frederick A.
The stated purpose of this resource guide is to entice teachers to explore ecological aspects of coastal awareness. Discussions describe different characteristics of the coast such as: (1) waves, currents, and tides; (2) sandy beaches; (3) rocky shores; (4) estuaries; and (5) marshes. These discussions present some of the physical processes that occur along the coast and how those processes affect the ecology of the coast. Some activities are suggested which can increase high school students awareness of the coast. A resources section including: (1) reading suggestions; (2) list of films; (3) some federal and state information sources; and (4) a glossary is presented. (MR)
