The proposed exercise book is the result of a NSF-funded, Phase 1 CCLI project branded as Building Core Knowledge - Reconstructing Earth History. This project effectively integrates scientific ocean drilling data and research (DSDP-ODP-IODPANDRILL) with education. We have developed and are currently testing a suite of datarich inquiry-based exercises. These materials have been used successfully in a range of undergraduate courses including Introduction to Earth Systems and Climate Change, Historical Geology, and Oceanography, as well as in an international graduate level short course on Paleoclimatology. 'Science made accessible' is the essence of this project. ? The exercises address relevant and timely Big Ideas with foundational geoscience concepts and climate change case studies, as well transferable skills valued in professional settings (see Table 1). They are divided into separate but inter-related modules including: introduction to cores, seafloor sediments, microfossils and biostratigraphy, paleomagnetism and magnetostratigraphy, climate rhythms, oxygenisotope changes in the Cenozoic, past Arctic and Antarctic climates, drill site selection, interpreting Arctic and Antarctic sediment cores, onset of Northern Hemisphere glaciation, onset of Antarctic glaciation, and the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum. Each module has several parts, and each is designed to be used in the classroom, laboratory, and/or assigned as homework.
