This Earth history class is intended for non-geoscience majors and follows a chronological structure, starting with the Big Bang and finishing in the anthropogenic period. Abridged from the syllabus: This course is ...
Earth and Life Through Time
Francis Jones, University of British Columbia
Students' abilities to use both geological and biological reasoning are developed, to learn about how the rock and fossil records together characterize the history of interaction between biological and ...
Global Environmental Obstacles
Walter Borowski, Eastern Kentucky University
The course uses Mackenzie's Our Changing Planet as a template and investigates world population, diminishing water resources, anthropogenic effects on the atmosphere (ozone hole and acid rain), and global ...
Earth: Evolution of a Habitable World
This is Earth history taught from a planetary science perspective, comparing it to its neighboring planets. Using a systems approach, students determine how and why the atmosphere and the climate have changed over ...
