Contribute Earth Education Project Site

Teach the Earth (TTE) maintains a collection of Earth Education Project Sites. This set of project websites has been recognized by Teach the Earth as relevant and useful for Earth Educators. If you are the owner/editor of a website that you feel belongs in this collection, NAGT invites you to complete the submission form below.


External sites that are linked from Teach the Earth should meet the following criteria:

  • content aligns with the scope of TTE (The site supports teaching and learning about the Earth by providing online resources for educators in the geosciences and related fields. Existing TTE resources include classroom activities, course descriptions and syllabi, information about pedagogical strategies, topical collections, and more.)
  • content is relevant to NAGT membership (whole or in subset) and has a well-defined audience
  • grounded in research and best practices
  • site is well-organized, easy to navigate, with clear links; there is clear alignment between context, goals, and resources
  • resources support new users
  • site is scientifically accurate, of enduring value, and/or actively maintained
  • sufficient free content to be useful to Earth educators; descriptions should only describe the free content.

The leadership of NAGT will make the final determination about the inclusion of submitted websites in the collection based on these criteria.

Site Information

All uploaded files are public unless you are in a private workspace

Title: A descriptive, human readable title.

e.g. 'Student Handout for Sauerkraut Assignment'

Select the file: Make sure it has an appropriate suffix (e.g. .doc) or specify the type in the Optional Fields below

Description: A very brief description of the file.

File Type:

The system will attempt to determine the correct file type based on the name of the file you've selected. Choosing the correct file type here will override that.

File Name:

e.g. 'student_handout'
This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.


I am the author (copyright holder) of the contents of this file and people are allowed to reuse it for non-commercial purposes as long as they give me attribution as described by this creative commons license.
Who is the original creator/copyright holder of the information in this file?


A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.

Reuse License

The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site.
If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.

If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under which this material appears on this site as well as any information about reuse beyond this site.

Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.

If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future. Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.

If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.

Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:

  • You can contact the original author to get permission.
  • You can provide a link to (or a description of how to get) the original material rather than uploading it here.
  • You can find a substitute that isn't encumbered by copyright.
  • You can create a substitute yourself. Remember, ideas can't be copyrighted, only particular expressions of those ideas. Of course you'll want to give credit the original author.

The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.
