Fortner, Rosanne W.; Jenkins, Deborah Bainer – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2009
To find out about the microscopic life in the valuable estuary environment, it is usually necessary to be near the water. This dry lab offers an alternative, using authentic data and a simulation of plankton sampling. From the types of organisms found in the sample, middle school students can infer relationships in the biological and physical…

Jung, Hun Bok; Zamora, Felix; Duzgoren-Aydin, Nurdan S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Water quality is an important interdisciplinary environmental topic for project-based learning. An undergraduate summer research internship program at a public minority serving institution engaged environmental science majors in community-based research experiences. The research focused on the field monitoring of water quality for surface water…

Beaumont, Brent – Primary Science, 2014
The author explains how the children at his primary school in New Zealand are inspired by their involvement in environmental monitoring. Shellfish surveys are conducted annually in New Zealand in order to establish the health of their estuaries. By involving the children in this national monitoring programme, prepared by the Hauraki Gulf Forum (an…

Schnittka, Christine – Science Teacher, 2006
There is something that draws all people to the sea and especially to the fertile estuaries that nuzzle up to its shores. An estuary serves as both a nursery and a grave for sea creatures. If life evolved from some primordial sea, it may well have been an estuary--a place where ocean and rivers meet and fresh and salty waters mingle in the…

Beghetto, Ronald A.; Kaufman, James C. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2009
Academic learning and creativity should be overlapping goals that can be simultaneously pursued in programs of advanced academics. However, efforts aimed at nurturing creativity and academic learning sometimes are represented as two related but separate paths; this separation is unnecessary and can undermine the development of creative and…

Deterding, David – TESOL Quarterly: A Journal for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and of Standard English as a Second Dialect, 2005
In Singapore, many people are not familiar with Estuary English (EE), the variety of English becoming popular in much of southern England. In the current study, when students listened to interviews with EE speakers and were asked to transcribe orthographically what they heard, most of them had severe problems. Features of pronunciation that…

Fortner, Rosanne; Bainer, Deborah L. – Science Activities, 1983
Provides an OEAGLS (Oceanic Education Activities for Great Lakes Schools) activity showing how biological sampling can be taught using acquatic examples in a "dry lab." The activity, requiring use of mathematical/observational skills, simulates a plankton sample and stimulates discussions of how environmental/human factors can cause…

Abdullah, Mohd. Harun; Sidi, Jovita; Aris, Ahmad Zaharin – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2007
Concentrations of heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Cr, Pb and Zn) in tissues of Meretrix meretrix Roding (M. meretrix R.), water and sediments from two estuaries were determined. One estuary is located in an urban area of Kota Kinabalu (Likas estuary) and the other in a rural district of Kota Belud (Kota Belud estuary), where both are in Sabah, North of…

Gerido, Leona; Curran, Mary Carla – American Biology Teacher, 2014
Technology use in science classes can enhance lessons and reinforce scientific content. The creation of multimedia projects is a great way to engage students in lessons about estuarine ecosystems. In this activity, students can learn about estuarine organisms and use their creativity to write a story, create artwork, and develop a multimedia…

Dunne, Barbara B. – 1979
The Maryland Marine Science Education Project has produced a series of mini-units in marine science education for the junior high/middle school classroom. This unit focuses on food chains in an estuary. Although the unit specifically treats the Chesapeake Bay, it may be adapted for use with similar estuarine systems. In addition, the unit may be…

Rotter, Christoph E. – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Language attitudes involve two sequential cognitive processes: "categorisation" and "stereotyping." Against this empirically underresearched postulate, this study illuminates the influence of self-reported accent identifications on speaker evaluations. Using the matched guise technique, attributions to three L1 varieties of…
