cos course goals
COS course goals
  • Introduce future scientists to importance of K-12 education and public outreach
  • Introduce science majors to possible careers in K-12 education
  • Encourage thoughtful, mutually beneficial collaborations between ocean scientists and educators
  • Provide significant ocean science instruction and college-age role models for under-represented K-12 students
slide8
And…
  • If you become scientists, you’ll care about teaching (including your own) and public education…devote effort to K-12 outreach
  • You’ll be informed voters regardless of your chosen career
  • Some of you may even consider a career in K-12 education or informal education
slide9
And…
  • The National Science Foundation (NSF) has acknowledged that Ocean Science is nearly absent from the K-12 (and undergraduate) curriculum
  • College students like you are important role models
practice what we preach
Practice what we preach
  • Flexible model of how people learn
  • The model will be practiced:

• in the hands-on activities you

take into the classrooms

• in the lesson you design
