Class Experience

After this course students will be able to:
- apply their understand of fish adaptations to determine animal habitat and lifestyle.
- identify location and function of common structures of marine fish.
- understand the history and creation of Gyotaku fish printing
- create their own Gyotaku fish print.  
It's my passion to create unique, engaging learning experiences.  I strive to create learner-centered, integrated lessons that relate content to students’ lives.  I believe that my educational background in the field of marine science, professional teaching degree and extensive experiencing developing/delivering educational programs for all ages, will generate a class experience that fosters learners' appreciation for our oceans and environment.
While creation of student fish prints is encouraged it is not required.  Students may wish to attend class and create their prints at a later time.    
For students to complete their fish print they must have the following items: -a thawed whole fish specimen 6 inches or larger -white construction paper or similar -paint brushes, washable paint -a work space such as a kitchen counter or table. *Safe food handling procedures must be followed when working with specimens. Please have all materials ready and available at the beginning of class. Parental guidance is suggested.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students' understanding will be informally assessed during class discussion.   
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be demonstrating how to create a print using a real fish specimen.  Some students my be sensitive to the concepts of capture and use of deceased animals.  All fish specimens used in class are ethically and locally caught from from a small fishing company and market owned and operated in the state of Florida.
