AB: A new model for a teacher research experience, dubbed The "School of Rock" (SOR), was created when 13 K- 12 educators from across the U.S. sailed for two and a half weeks on the JOIDES Resolution, a scientific ocean drilling vessel. During a transit between expeditions of the NSF-funded Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, two research scientists, a full technical staff, staff organizers from Joint Oceanographic Institutions' JOI Learning and its JOI Alliance partners, and ship's crew were on hand to demonstrate and facilitate hands- on research techniques and data acquisition. The educators analyzed core samples and data from 26 scientific ocean drilling expeditions. Through these experiences, the SOR educators are now able to intertwine authentic new and archived data into their classroom objectives and lessons. Heather Kortlandt, a Michigan high school science teacher, will share her experiences writing and field-testing new SOR-inspired curricular activities with high school students and a new weeklong, shore-based, graduate course she designed for teachers at Western Michigan University.
