Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
The goal for this class is that students will walk away with a detailed understanding of the geologic column, fossil formation and extinction.  Students will also gain a broad perspective on the diversity of life through the ages on our planet.  
I received my degree major in Geology and earned a minor in Biology.  While at college, I focused my study in paleontology and completed an honors thesis in Conodont Biostratigraphy.  I have been teaching science topics such as Geology, Biology and Paleontology to small student groups out of my own classroom, using my own curriculums for over seven years.  
1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Carnivorous dinosaurs and other animals will be presented in this class including some images of them feeding on other creatures.  We will discuss death and extinction of animal species.
The sources I use to make all my class material comes from my knowledge gained while in college and from from the textbooks I purchased for my classes, such as Bringing Fossils to Life by Prothero.  I also use a variety of dinosaur encyclopedias I've purchased over the years such as Dinosaurus by Steve Parker and Dinosaurs by Carl Mehling.
