The course offers a standards-based, content-intensive study of the geology and biogeography of South Carolina from an interdisciplinary perspective. A minimum of four teachers per group hosts a local teleconference site at their school. Instruction is presented through a combination of videotapes, print media, internet resources and live, interactive videoconferencing. On-site master teachers assist groups with class activities. Each group chooses three study units out of 10 available modules. Unit 1 is required for those who have not previously completed an approved statewide natural history course. Each teacher must have internet and e-mail access, either through school or at home.
