Title: Teaching marlne archaeology at Florida Keys Community College
Author: Mathewson III, RD
Abstract: This paper will discuss the involvement of the Florida Keys Community College (FKCC) with developing a Maritime Archaeology program with a Florida Department of Education Title II grant for excellence in Math, Science and Computer Learning. A broad overview will outline the progress made over the last two years of developing curricula with four main objectives: A) The development of a course of study integrating shipwreck archaeology, maritime history and marine environmental studies which would eventually lead to an Associate's ofArt Degree. B) The development of a dual enrollment program which would introduce local high school students to the major principles and concepts of marine archaeology and cultural resource management. C) The development of a training workshop program which would introduce K-12 teachers to different types of lesson plans for use in their own classrooms to get across ideas about historic shipwrecks and why they should be protected as an integral part of our maritime heritage. D) The development of "Life-Lon~Learning" educational components which would attract mature students and recreational divers interested in getting involved with professional archaeologists in on-going shipwreck surveys in American waters.
