The Maury Project is an oceanography-based graduate-level teacher enhancement program, designed to promote the scientific literacy of young people by improving the background of pre-college teachers on the physical foundations of oceanography. The training of teachers is through a peer-training process of training the trainers at a two-week workshop held at the US Naval Academy and subsequently via single-topic modules presented in sessions presented throughout the United States. This project was designed to meet the following objectives a Master teachers will be trained to be peer trainers and resource persons on the physical foundations of selected oceanographic topics andor issues. b Self-contained single-topic teacher-enhancement instructional modules will be prepared and provided for use by the peer trainers in 1- to 2-hour training sessions. c The peer trainers will arrange and conduct training sessions for other teachers, with support of the AMS. d A national network of oceanography peer trainers and resource persons will be developed and maintained. e A variety of instructional resource materials on the physical foundations of oceanography and related topics will be prepared and disseminated for adaptations by teachers for use in their own classrooms.
