The AMNH course The Dynamic Earth: A Course for Educators provides students with an overview of the origin and evolution of the Earth. Informed by the recently released Next Generation Science Standards, this course examines geological time scales, radiometric dating, and how scientists “read the rocks.” We will explore dramatic changes in the Earth over the last 4 billion years, including how the evolution of life on Earth has affected its atmosphere. In addition to looking at geology on a global scale, participants will take to their own backyards to explore and share their local geologic history. Course participants will bring their understanding of the dynamic Earth - along with content resources, discussion questions, and assignments - into their own teaching.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE DYNAMIC EARTH: A COURSE FOR EDUCATORS
very educational and interesting. will be beneficial for me as I want to pursue geology in university.
I enjoyed taking this course, very simple and clear information.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course. The two presenters were excellent & the course materials very clear. I learned a lot about my own area in the local geology project.
Excellent I learned a lot despite not being an educator. I think that the peer review system leaves much to be desired as your submission may not be marked
