FALL 2014 Itinerary

REQUIRED orientation:
Saturday, November 1, 9:10 am to 11:30 am, S45
Field trip: BOTH DAYS REQUIRED
Saturday, November 15, 9:10 am to 5 pm (1/2 hour for lunch mid-day)

CONTENT: This class will cover San Francisco Geology -- the rocks and sediment that underlie our parks and buildings -- and the geological history that created them.

LOCATIONS: Field trip will visit about a dozen different locations from San Bruno Mountain, to Fort Point, to Coit Tower. Participants should be in sufficient physical condition to be outdoors all day, rain or shine, and walk up and down hills and across sand and uneven terrain for distances up to 1 to 2 miles at a single stop.

TRANSPORTATION: Students will arrange their own transportation. Carpools are encouraged and can be coordinated by students during the orientation.

LOGISTICS: I recommend you take this class pass/no pass. Letter grades are possible, but will require a research project prior to field trip. All students are required to read guidebook prior to trip and complete worksheets before and during field trip. Participation and four quizzes will determine grade. (Each field day will have an open-notes, open-book, solo effort quiz due by 6 am and an open field notes paper quiz at end of field day.) Quizzes cannot be made up, so be sure to arrive on time and attend the full trip.
