Over the past few years, over 3000 teaching activities in the On the Cutting Edge collections have been reviewed.  Each activity receives two peer reviews from members of the geoscience education community with final recommendations submitted by an Associate Editor. "Exemplary" status is awarded to fewer than 20% of the teaching activities in the On the Cutting Edge collection.  The course activity can be seen here: http://serc.carleton.edu/bioregion/examples/51308.html
