The Historical Geology Workbook is written with students and lab instructors in mind. This fifth iteration connects students directly into each activity, and encourages them to broaden their knowledge by utilizing additional resources (i.e., textbooks and websites). The workbook focuses on more direct observations and more opportunities to solve problems like “real” geologists.
The activities are highly adaptable for those who want to incorporate additional material into the content. Many labs can be answered as “minute papers” and/or class discussions. Most labs can also be adapted for take home or distance learning activities.
