This curriculum model represents an entire school district's attempt to use paleontology to implement standards-based education reforms. While most colleges do not have a dinosaur available for student and teacher use, the project provides a template for partnerships between colleges and local school districts. The curriculum can be adopted by teachers to institute standards-based classroom practice ... Full description.

This activity will aid in developing language with students, which they can then use to talk about and critique scientific arguments. Students will begin by attempting to sequence and create a story around a series of cartoon frames. This experience will serve as the basis for a discussion about how decisions were made in this instance and how arguments are constructed in science more generally. In ... Full description.

This site contains an activity in which students are asked to use their Earth-Moon-Sun (EMS) model to solve one of several challenge problems. Each problem contains data about celestial or seasonal phenomena that students have not encountered before. The challenge for the students is to use their EMS model to explain these new scenarios. In this final activity, the students will work in groups of ... Full description.

This study investigates students' ideas about watersheds and how these ideas change across grade level. A group of 95 students were each asked to draw a picture of a watershed and explain their drawings. The results revealed that, in general, students understand the concept of watersheds from a very limited scientific perspective. Sixth and some seventh grade students envisioned watersheds as a water ... Full description.

This study involved surveying three groups of students regarding their ideas about the structure, scale, and percieved importance of groundwater. The survey results show that many participants selected sizes of groundwater structures that mirrored surface analogs; however, some students applied scales on the order of houses and skyscrapers to typical pore and crack structures. The authors' research ... Full description.

This study explores junior high school students' perceptions of the water cycle. Data were collected from 1,000 7th and 9th grade students in Israel using a series of quantitative and qualitative research tools that were specifically developed for the study. The findings indicated that the students understood some of the processes involved, but most lacked the dynamic, cyclic, and systemic perceptions ... Full description.

This study examines the relationships between students' self-reported interest and their responses to a physics beliefs survey. Results from the Colorado Learning Attitudes about Science Survey (CLASS), collected in a large calculus-based introductory mechanics course, were used to characterize students' beliefs at the beginning and end of the semester. Students were also asked at the end of the semester ... Full description.

This paper examines the effects of substituting a computer simulation for real laboratory equipment in the second semester of a large-scale introductory physics course. The direct current circuit laboratory was modified to compare the effects of using computer simulations with the effects of using real light bulbs, meters, and wires. Two groups of students, those who used real equipment and those ... Full description.
