Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the history of the bone wars and the two men who, through their actions, made dinosaurs the most popular prehistoric creature in the late 19th century public eye.
I studied paleontology under Philip Currie at the University of Alberta. I have gone on several digs in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota and have worked in the Deep Time department of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
No homework will be assigned as it is a one time class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This does cover subjects such as war and colonialism/manifest destiny as the two historical figures did make explotative use of this.
