Teachers Information

This is the original book from which most of the marine education curriculum materials were born.

Quite an effort to find the data from my 1991 computer files, and it was also difficult to locate photos I took some 30 years ago, BUT its a record of what was my first book.  

There are original copies in the State library and in the national archives.

Water quality chapter revision

In 2018 I revised Chapter 13 in response for teachers who wanted a simple unit on water quality with a set of tables that could be understood by students.  In 1992 I was lucky to meet Bill Stapp from the US, who had a book called water quality for community action groups and this fitte the bill.
