Welcome . . .
to my Earth Science for Teachers page! The Geology classes taught at CSU Los Angeles strive to give the student an introduction to the world of geology. The Earth Science for Elementary Teachers class is designed primarily for students in CSULA's elementary teacher preparation programs. Basic concepts in earth science are correlated with the California science standards for the multiple subject credential and the California science content standards for grades K-6 (California State Board of Education, 2001). Topics are illustrated by demonstrations and activities. Lecture 2 hours, activity 2 hours

We will be covering a lot of information, much of which will be new to you. Plan on spending a few hours outside of class studying. Please use any and all resources available to you: your textbook, the internet, class lectures, myself.
