Wanchese Harbor--Community Development. Project CAPE Teaching Module SOC.
Gray, R. Wayne; Martin, William T.
North Carolina and Dare County, with assistance from the federal government, are developing a seafood industrial park at Wanchese, a small residential community. The purposes of this park are to develop a major commercial seafood handling, processing, and distribution port in North Carolina; and to provide a home port with support facilities for a commercial fishing fleet. Whenever a large industry moves into a small community, a disruptive process occurs, with both adverse and beneficial tradeoffs. Issues and topics related to the development of the park form the focus of the nine interdisciplinary lessons in this unit. Each lesson includes key concepts, competency goals, objectives, materials needed, background information, teacher preparation, questions for students, and activities for use in language arts, social studies, art, and science classes. Topic areas explored in the lessons include: (1) location and general description of the park; (2) planning transportation; (3) environmental impacts; (4) air and water pollution; (5) retail and wholesale marketing; (6) seafood industry; (7) marine careers; (8) planning for recreational demands; and (9) community planning and the environment. Text for a filmstrip presentation and packet of materials to be duplicated for student use are included. (JN)
