TECTONIC PETRAMETER: AN ILLUSTRATED SPOKEN-WORD JOURNEY THROUGH EARTH HISTORY
"Tectonic Petrameter" is an illustrated spoken-word poem which leads its listeners on an excitingly educational journey through geologic time. "The Archean came next and it was a blast. Tectonic plates were smaller and they moved pretty fast. In an enthusiastic flash of ash, volcanic islands smashed together." The use of rhyme and rhythm presents a different approach to teaching Earth history which makes learning fun and hilarious while clearly describing important concepts in geology and events in Earth history. "Now it's time to get down with the Coal Swamp Stomp! Tap your feet to the beat of the formation of peat like a plant plantation soaking up the bright heat." Print copies and CD recordings of "Tectonic Petrameter" will be distributed after the presentation to interested parties for educational purposes.
