Hi Ethan (et al),

Turns out I just gave a 45-min class on REE in the Earth Materials class from Prof. Kevin Mahan at CU Boulder. It is including some research I published in AmMin in 2015 and some basic information. We also have a current project going on in the South Platte pegmatite district, in the Pikes Peak batholith, but I cannot tell you more about it for the moment :)

This is just an intro class on REE, but maybe some material is of interest to you? If so, I can put a copy of my PPT file on my personal server and give you the link (send me a private msg).

By the way, does anyone have any good lesson plans and/or content for teaching REE minerals, resources, and relevance in an earth materials course, or even an intro course?  I see a few things posted on the SERC website... but I wonder if anyone has any favorites to suggest?

It has been some time since I read the article deprecating the term, but I recall the phrase "the elements in question are neither rare nor earths," or words to that effect.  Unlike other matters of terminology, this one isn't that critical so I won't pursue the matter further if I seem to be the only one who recalls this.
