Come travel the world with me and learn about the spectacular processes that create all of the geologic features on Earth! In this 10-week semester course, learners will explore the world of physical geology with a Geologist who has field experience and has worked in interesting geologic areas in real life. This course is designed to teach the basic principles of geology and cover a wide range of topics. This course will be taught based off of lecture, video, slides, and class discussion....
Learners will explore physical geology topics and be able to discuss each topic in detail. Learners will understand how to begin writing for the sciences.
Learners will have the benefit of participating in this course with an experienced Geologist. I have worked in the private and public sectors and have real field experience in these settings. I have done the work past the classroom and built a knowledge base for my students to gain a greater understanding of this branch of science.
Learners will review course content via a PDF file to prepare for an optional quiz each week. Learners will also have short writing assignments and begin to research topics for these assignments. All other assigned work will be in the form of handouts created by me. All material will be posted in the class forum by Sunday for the following week so that each learner has ample time to print if necessary. The amount of time each learner spends on homework is dependent on interest. For some learners, it may take 1-2 hours and for others it may take several hours just because that particular learner is exploring additional information not required in class.
Learners will need a standard notebook for writing and graph paper for quick sketches.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each learner can expect to be provided with a written report on performance during the course. No grades are given but feedback is valuable. Informal assessments in the form of a short quiz will be provided each week.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We may use standard and trusted sources such as the U.S.G.S. website during this course.
