Disconnection between students and nature in an urban setting thwarts student engagement and impedes geoscience teaching and learning. Conducting field trips is one way to engage students, but the urban environment does not provide an ideal setting with respect to the availability of appropriate field sites and safety. This text reports on a field-based inquiry project conducted in San Antonio, Texas. ... Full description.

At the University of South Alabama, which is located along the rock-free central Gulf Coast, researchers have attempted to improve Earth history instruction to education majors. This paper describes their approach. The authors ... Full description.

NOTE: This is a large file, 95.8 mb in size! One way to envision our mental knowledge structure is as a hyperlinked network of concepts, a concept map. Concept maps are a useful tool to help students articulate ideas, identify and arrange key concepts, and see how these ideas and concepts are connected. For geology, however, concept maps fail to take advantage of the very visual nature of the science ... Full description.

This article describes a study analyzing narrative essays, stories of rock formation, written by pre-service elementary school teachers. Most of these students had completed a college-level course in earth science, yet they expressed startling misconceptions about how rocks form. These misconceptions arise from deeply held but largely unexamined beliefs (conceptual prisms) that result from the interaction ... Full description.
