WELCOME
  • The Ocean Literacy Programme is in its 3rd Year.
    Many of you may have attended training at the
    Little Cayman Research Centre in 2009 and may
    already use Our Ocean Planet a Teachers Manual
    for Ocean Science.
  • This year, we have focused on providing resources
    for you in the classroom, to better support Ocean
    Science in our schools.
  • Ocean Literacy is understanding the influence of
    the ocean on you and your influence on the ocean.
  • Mission
  • To ensure that all students of the Cayman Islands
    are Ocean Literate by the age of 12

THE 7 PRINCIPLES OF OCEAN LITERACY
  • Overview a scientific approach provided by
    Valentino Lee
  • Presentation of Handbook and resources
  • Interaction and feedback from teachers

5
THE OCEAN LITERACY PROJECT HANDBOOK
  • The Project Handbook has been developed with the
    following objectives in mind
  • The Project Handbook uses the 7 Principles of
    Ocean Literacy as a scientific structure, to help
    you better manage each lesson project and to
    focus on the bigger picture
  • The Project Handbook helps highlight relevant
    topics over the whole spectrum of the 7
    Principles, providing relevant resources
  • The Project Handbook is designed to be flexible,
    to provide ideas and support not to be a one
    fit for all solution

STRUCTURAL OVERVIEW

PROJECT HANDBOOK DESIGN
The Project Handbook has been designed to not
only map out a complete project through Key
Stages 1-3, but to also provide an in-depth focus
on each individual Key Stage It is completely
flexible, offering a complete structure which can
be used at will The topics here are
recommendations only obviously they can be
interchangeable with other ocean- based topics
8
OVERVIEW KEY STAGE 1

OVERVIEW - KEY STAGE 2

OVERVIEW - KEY STAGE 3
11
NATIONAL CURRICULUM - REFERENCES
The Project Handbook is not intended as an
official National Curriculum document At the
beginning of each Key Stage section, we have
suggested National Curriculum topics which can be
covered within the project The more National
Curriculum requirements are met, obviously the
more beneficial the project will be in terms of
meeting students learning needs Example see
page 10 in the Project Handbook
12
A STANDALONE PROJECT?
We have designed a 6-week Ocean Literacy project,
based on the 7 Principles of Ocean Literacy The
project is designed to be flexible Individual
Principles may be used for smaller projects The
resources listed in the Handbook may be used to
help bolster a current project (such as
Habitats or The Deep) The longer the
project, the better the chance of a students
understanding of Ocean Literacy
13
RESOURCES - OVERVIEW
Main resource http//www.reefresearch.org Web
resources our goal is to move away from printed
materials where possible Please provide feedback
(both good and bad), along with resources you
already use and those that can be made available
to other teachers
14
RESOURCES - PRINT
  • The following local texts are referred to in the
    Project Handbook
  • Our Ocean Planet A Teachers Manual for Ocean
    Science (provided by CCMI)
  • Coral Gardens A Teachers Guide (provided by
    the DOE)
  • Endangered Caribbean Sea Turtles An Educators
    Handbook (provided by WIDECAST)
  • Wondrous West Indian Wetlands A Teachers
    Resource Book (provided by WIWD Working Group of
    the Society for the Conservation and Study of
    Caribbean Birds)
  • They should be readily available in your schools

15
RESOURCES - ONLINE
  • The Project Handbook refers to many online
    resources therefore, access to the web is
    crucial
  • The National Geographic website provides
    excellent resources, especially short video clips
    which are perfect for more investigative /
    research-based learning
  • http//video.nationalgeographic.com/video/player/e
    nvironment/ocean-now/why-ocean-matters.html

NEXT STEPS
  • Key teaching staff will be further trained by
    CCMI, to provide continued support in schools as
    Ocean Literacy experts
  • Key teaching staff will be involved with an IB
    working group, to further support Ocean Literacy
    within the IB format
  • Key teaching staff will be asked to provide
    feedback on the Project Handbook, to further
    enable resource development.
