Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
To discover and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of this course students will know in depth details of most Earth Science curriculums.
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.
Homework Offered
Homework is optional. From weeks 2 to 14 there will be 6 multi-choice questions to answer using Google Forms within a week of class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Assessment is optional. Students will get instant feedback on the multi-choice questions and their scores will be added up over the Semester to contribute ot a final grade with a certificate.
Grades Offered
Grades will be offered on request as long as the student answers enough of the optional weekly questions. A certificate of attendance with grade will be sent to the student at the end of the Semester.
Structured lecture classes, so participation optional, relieves anxiety
Mixed media slides appeal to different learning styles

Multi-choice questions avoids penalising spelling
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 sensative students may find these topics distressing.
