Harvesting the Ocean: Teachers' Handbook.
Caton, Albert, Ed.; And Others
This teaching guide is designed for use with three units of study (presented in separate booklets titled "The Ocean,""The Harvest," and "Using the Sea Wisely"). The multidisciplinary units contain teaching and learning resources designed to provide: students with learning experiences using a variety of thinking processes; learning experiences in science, social science, home economics, English, and art; and a balance between local and overseas focus for students bearing in mind that the focus audience is in school in both the United States and Australia. "The Ocean" is designed for lower secondary students and serves as an introduction to the ocean environment. "The Harvest" is intended primarily for lower to middle secondary levels and focuses on harvesting, fishing in traditional and industrial societies, marketing fish, and the social, cultural, and moral issues involved in the consumption of fish. "Using the Sea Wisely" is designed for upper secondary students and introduces a number of complex concepts dealing with the management and regulation of the ocean and its resources. Included in this guide are instructional strategies for the student activities in the three booklets, list of materials needed and procedures for laboratory activities, and suggestions for introducing and/or extending topics.
