High school students are featured in a new Teaching with the Stars teacher education unit filmed in Corpus Christi, Texas. Students take a field trip to Goose Island State Park in Aransas Bay to learn about oysters and oyster bed restoration. This is a first look at the new Stars teaching unit. The unit was produced through a partnership between the Harte Research Institute at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, the Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education and The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, and H2O – Headwaters to Oceans (http://www.water-texas.org ).
Featured in the video is Corpus Christi “Star” teacher, Mr. James (J.R.) Jones and his aquatic science class students from Richard King High School. Mr. Jones is a recipient of the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation’s Environmental Stewardship Award for Education.
