I'm doing an ethnography of techniques/lessons/materials that the Worldwide Voyage crew members are using for outreach, what's working or not working and if having a workshop that will provide additional resources would be useful.
This project actually began when I was working in a public school and my life wasn’t into waa yet. I really wanted to partner with a PVS crewmember, but found it difficult to get a relationship started for the Worldwide Voyage.
I started to volunteer a lot with waa tours and from speaking with many waa friends, it kind of evolved into this project to hopefully make school visits easier for people who don’t teach in classrooms or interact with students on a regular basis. I mean seriously, teaching is hard! I realized that the best sailor might not necessarily be the best teacher (and vice versa).
I hope to provide new interactive ideas and STEMS^2 based lessons that can further strengthen the programs PVS already offers schools, teachers and students. I hope my findings and workshop will also inspire and encourage teachers to make their own lessons.

Joe's comment has definitely helped me, but I'm having difficulty finding good articles that relate to my topic. Anyone else have suggestions or know a few articles I should look through? Mahalo.
