About the Classroom Connection

 The mission of the Classroom Connection is to spark inter­est and enthu­si­asm for learn­ing in the spe­cial edu­ca­tion class­rooms by engag­ing in ship-to-shore inter­ac­tions between stu­dents in the Phoenix area and the sci­en­tists and drillers on board the JOIDES Res­o­lu­tion, the “JR” (Sep­tem­ber – Novem­ber 2011). It is our hope that the excite­ment stu­dents have in cruises and “cool” sci­ence will be help­ful in teach­ing them state-mandated cur­ric­ula by incor­po­rat­ing these inter­ac­tions into your math, writ­ing, read­ing and/or social stud­ies lessons.
