GEO 493.07 Geology of Illinois: Teaching Rocks, Minerals, and Mining

This is a summer workshop course for teachers offered with the Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers. The main focus of the workshop is Illinois geology, mining, land reclamation, sustainability, and environmental issues. Misconceptions about the aggregates industry are also explored. During this workshop, teachers learn about, and actively participate in, various hands-on educational activities suitable for teaching earth science in the classroom. The information presented in the workshop lectures is then brought to life during field trips to active Illinois mining operations and land reclamation sites.
