Dear Friends and Colleagues, 
We are still accepting applications for our teacher workshop in the Florida
Keys.  This program uses hands-on marine biology as a hook to teach science and
will take place just prior to the National Marine Education Association
Meeting.  While this program is primarily geared toward science teachers, the
program would also be useful for ESL and special needs students since part of
the program involves modification of materials to meet the needs of all
students.  Additionally, the program will have opportunities for math, computer
science and language arts faculty since the material is designed for use in
interdisciplinary studies as well with a variety of extensions into these
areas.  I would appreciate it if you can pass this information on!   
Thanks so much,

Workshop on the beach in the Florida Keys!   Application Deadline extended to
June 10, 2004.  During The Institute for Biomedical Philosophy's workshop in
the Florida Keys July 10-16, 2004, educators will explore national
standards-based biology and ecology concepts using hands-on marine biology
models (snorkeling, dolphin swim and beach programs).  Program is open to
middle and high school teachers, pre-service teachers, informal educators, and
science education faculty. Content can be integrated across the curriculum with
different modalities to benefit a variety of learning styles.   Max. enrollment
25.  Cost -- $1200 includes field experiences, equipment, materials, double
occupancy lodging, and meals.  A $200 deposit is due on application deadline. 
Arrangements can be made for graduate credit.  For further information see [
