Reminder: Accretionary Wedge deadline Friday

Jim Lehane's comment on my last post just reminded me that it's Accretionary Wedge time again. Jim's hosting the geology carnival, and he's got a back-to-school theme:


So your mission is this: "What out of the box ideas do you use to teach people about geology or geological concepts?" No need to limit yourself on ideas you have actively used. If you have used it and you think it is good, great. Is it an idea you have worked up on and gotten ready but haven't had the chance to use it yet, also great (this is pretty much my scenario). What if it is just a theory that you think would be something different and cool, even better. Anything works, as long as it is "Outside the Box" (i.e. not your typical lecture and textbook approach).

Submissions are due Friday, August 21. Leave a comment on Jim's post to be included.



September's version of the Accretionary Wedge is going to be hosted by David at cryology and co. We're still looking for hosts for October and later, so if you're interested, please leave a comment here.

I almost missed the lastest Accretionary Wedge!

So, 13 hours after my first class began…
