Selected References on Teaching Petrology

The vast majority of articles on teaching petrology are published in the Journal of Geoscience Education or the Journal of Chemical Education. To find recent articles of interest from these journals:

The April 2007 special volume of Elements Magazine is a collection of articles about teaching mineraology, petrology and geochemistry. To complement this volume, we have developed the Elements Bibliography that includes an extensive collection of articles, teaching activities, on-line resources, and related information on the scholarship of teaching.
