Coastal Erosion Online Discussion part of Cutting Edge:Online Teaching:Activities for Teaching Online
This assignment is designed to get students to see the application of geology to a local problem, coastal erosion along the Lake Erie shoreline. I think the strength of this assignment is that many of the students have been to beaches and other sites along Lake Erie, but are totally unaware that there are erosion problems. In this exercise, they not only have to understand the geology of coastal erosion, but they have to think about what should be done along the shoreline.
