I just got the go-ahead to start A-level Geology next year - a bit too excited! I have been trawling the internet looking for resources and ideas. I was a geologist years ago so I shouldn't feel so nervous about revising the topics but I am. For any who do teach it, I would love any advice, resources, ideas, surplus supplies that you may have and will do my best to help in return!
I have already looked at joining ESTA, contacted WJEC to run their spec, looked at Geopix, http://geology.com/
, and http://www.ukge.co.uk/
. The college seems to have maps, fossils (but no rocks or minerals strangely), and I think some slides already, and whatever I can scrounge from Science, but not sure how to get everything else I need without much budget! Any ideas? Working on getting the dedicated classroom for Geol/Geog - why do so many managers not like this nowadays - it makes so much difference to your teaching (And students learning).
Thanks so much for any and all help, especially swhitch who I have already been pestering for info!
