Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
To discover and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of this course students will be know in depth details of most Earth Science curriculums and will have completed the California State Earth Science elective curriculum.
I have a BSc in Geology and an MSc in Geophysics and have chosen the most interesting and exciting subjects to teach to get young minds fascinated by Earth Sciences. I also have a PhD in Philosophy.
Homework Offered
After each class we will discuss the assignments set by the Earth Science California State elective curriculum and set homework for each weak aimed at making progress to completing all the assessments related to that curriculum.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Feedback will be given on assignments during the course, especially during the portfolio check in December at the end of Semester 1. The student will be given an over all grade for the full year at the end of Semester 2.
Grades Offered
Some classes talks about Global Warming and Climate Change causing more frequent natural disasters. It also talks about mass extinctions including the possibility of humans causing one now (including ourselves) and has some drawn images of animals dying to become fossils. It is delivered in a upbeat manner with positive solutions (eg: switching to renewable energy), but the more sensitive students may find these topics distressing.
