Dr. Good's research uses non-marine mollusks (river and lake dwelling clams and snails) as tools for solving geological problems (primarily to constrain ancient depositional environments and to determine the age of deposition). Current research includes the study of fossils from the Morrison Formation (Jurassic) of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Other research examines the development of collaborations between professional scientific organizations and in-service and pre-service teachers. Dr. Good teaches courses in secondary science teaching methods, Introduction to Geology, Paleontology, and supervises student teachers in middle and high school science.
Dr Good serves as the Graduate Coordinator for the department’s Master of Science in Geoscience program. Dr. Good serves as the BSEd program coordinator to advise students and faculty regarding certification and accreditation requirements of the Pennsylvania State Department of Education (PDE), and the accreditation requirements of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education Programs (NCATE).
