‘Handbook for Increasing Ocean Literacy’ now available

A Handbook for Increasing Ocean Literacy: Tools for Educators and Ocean Literacy Advocates, developed by the National Marine Educators Association, with the support of NOAA, is now available to help educators and other ocean advocates teach, learn, and communicate about the ocean.

CT Sea Grant Education Coordinator Diana Payne is one of the editors of the book, along with Catherine Halversen, Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California, Berkeley (emerita); and Sarah Schoedinger, NOAA Office of Education.

The handbook provides a much needed resource comprising two highly regarded tools to use alongside Ocean Literacy: The Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts for All Audiences (NOAA, 2020) to advance ocean literacy.

It contains both Scope & Sequence and NGSS alignment; available online with screen reader capabilities or order hard copy via email to NOAA Outreach education@noaa.gov)
