The CORALS Connection
Plankis, Brian; Klein, Carolyn
Science Teacher, v77 n2 p47-51 Feb 2010
The Ocean, Reefs, Aquariums, Literacy, and Stewardship (CORALS) research program helps students connect global environmental issues to local concerns and personal choices. During the 18-week program, students strengthen their understanding of coral reef decline through a classroom aquarium activity, communicate with science experts, and create digital videos about the process. This combination of activities helps students build the motivation and ability to manage environmental needs and contribute to sustainable development. (Contains 1 figure.)
