Winona State University: Earth - The Water Planet
Jennifer Anderson, Winona State University; Cathy Summa, Winona State University
This interdisciplinary course is the first of two science content courses specifically designed for elementary education majors (K-5). It is team-taught by two science faculty from Geoscience, Physics, Chemistry, ...

Subject: Geoscience:Hydrology

Geochemistry
, Lake Superior State University
This course will provide an introduction to the topics that are normally covered in a college geochemistry course, but will serve as a substitute for economic geology as well. The primary focus will be to give ...

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Geochemistry

Geochemistry
Barry Bickmore, Brigham Young University
This course is an introductory geochemistry class that focuses on the application of basic chemical principles and problem-solving to geochemical systems.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Geochemistry

Marine Environmental Geology
Course taught by Prof. Ed Laine, Bowdoin College (edlaine@bowdoin.edu) and Cathryn Field, Lab Instructor (cfield@bowdoin.edu). Example compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center (ssavanic@carleton.edu).
This course is an introduction to the aspects of marine geology and oceanography that affect the environment and marine resources. Service-learning is an essential component of how students learn about the earth. We deliver part of the content of this course by arranging for students to solve a problem with a local community partner.

Freshwater Ecology/Limnology
Course taught by Dave Potter, Unity College. Example compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center.
Students study aquatic organisms in relation to the environmental conditions of lakes and streams. The course develops substantial quantities of data concerning the local watershed. This data is used by community partners in many contexts.

Subject: Biology, Geoscience:Hydrology:Surface Water:Water Quality/Chemistry

Environmental Analysis
Lois Ongley, Unity College
All of the physical processes which interact with the environment are covered at a more advanced level. The laboratory portion will include a major environmental project related to topics in aquatic chemistry, ...

Subject: Geoscience:Hydrology, Hydrology:Surface Water, Ground Water

Global Change and Human Health
The course begins by focusing on the dynamics of Earth's physical systems and the impacts of increasing human population on those systems, and concludes by examining several critical health issues in light of ...
