The Teacher-Friendly Guide to the Geology of Your Region
The guides give teachers the background to make sense of regional and local geology in terms of a basic sequence of historical events and processes. The guides help teachers to meet national and state science standards by providing concrete examples of geologic processes that are closer to home than many classic textbook examples. The guides explain why geological features occur when and where they do in order to help students to remember and predict the nature of local geology.
