The Good Earth presents an integrated series of Web resources designed to allow professors to have a completely on-line web course for environmental geology. The material on this site also will enhance courses like physical geology, natural disasters, and intro or general geology. This site makes it possible for any instructor with an internet connection to utilize the power and dynamism of the Web in Environmental Geology, and other related courses. And we've done the work!The Good Earth is a structured Web environment that instructors can use in place of a textbook. You and your students receive access to the Web site as well as a 304-page companion guide. Not only does this site offer interactive exercises that a traditional text just can't provide, but it is available to your students at less than half the price of traditional texts in environmental geology!The Good Earth Web site contains four major components:1) A series of lecture topics or chapters that deal with subjects covered in a typical environmental geology course2) Interactive presentations that contain 50 or more slides that can be projected in class3) An image glossary with images and descriptions of terms used in lectures4) An environmental calendar that describes key events in environmental historyThis visionary method of teaching will give students a more "hands-on" approach to learning geology. The Good Earth web site is organized in chapters, with animations used to explain certain processes, a summary, quizzes, and exercises, and web links to related web sites.
