Controversies in the Earth Sciences



About Lesson 6

Lesson 6 will take us two weeks complete. This lesson is the capstone project for this course, in which you are free to design your own course module, based (as much or as loosely as you want) on one of the topics we covered in the earlier lessons of this course.

What will we learn in Lesson 6?

By the end of Lesson 6, you should be able to:

  • Reflect on the topics we've covered in this course
  • Decide which parts of these are appropriate to teach to an audience of your choosing
  • Write a lesson plan and learning objectives to teach your chosen topic to your chosen audience
