HMSS (Hawaii Marine Science Studies) Sampler: Summer 1978 Draft Edition.
Chave, E. H.; And Others
The Hawaii Marine Science Studies (HMSS) Project has developed over twenty instructional units, which include student laboratory and field investigations, teacher guides and supplementary reference materials. HMSS units can be taught as a one or two semester course in high school marine science, or selected portions can be combined as marine science modules for use in other secondary courses. Design of HMSS materials is based on the premise that study of the oceans provides opportunity for students of all abilities to actively engage in multidisciplinary scientific inquiry while learning basic concepts of science. HMSS units are organized around the three themes. Two of the themes, the Fluid Earth and the Living Ocean, together represent the traditional areas of oceanography. The third theme, Technology and the Ocean, provides a natural science background for the study of socio-technical issues. Instructional units included under each theme are listed in this booklet along with sample instructional materials. (Author/BB)
