Formation & Evolution of the Earth
Saturday, November 15, 2008 - 10:00am to Saturday, November 15, 2008 - 12:30pm
Presented by Dr. Melinda Hutson, PSU, Department of Geology

1) Public Lecture (10:00 am - 11:25 am) - Free and open to everyone: teachers, students, and the general public. Each lecture will describe the highlights of one stage of our cosmic history, part of the grand narrative of human origins. There will also be time for general questions on the topic.

2) Round Table Discussion for Teachers (11:30 am - 12:30 pm) - Also free but focused on the needs of teachers. Bring your lunch if you'd like, and your questions and thoughts about how to implement the big ideas of the lecture into the specific settings of your classrooms. These informal follow-up discussions for educators will focus on the nitty-gritty details of how to harness the interest inspired by the big ideas of the lecture, to teach grade-level-appropriate science and math related to the lecture topic.

PSU School of Business Administration Building, room 190 (6th & Harrison)
