This website is an adaptation of Bloom's taxonomy of learning. Benjamin Bloom created this taxonomy in 1956 for categorizing the levels of comprehension that commonly occur in educational settings. This website features a table which clearly presents each category with definitions and cues/examples of behavior that expresses mastery of that level. The categories are hierarchical from least to most ... Full description.

This site presents a brief definition of scaffolding and example of its usefulness in media education. Published by the Media Awareness Network, the summary was adapted from a posting to their listserv by educator Bakari Chavanu. He defines scaffolding as developing a unit of study through a set sequence of four steps, which are listed. He also provides an example of how the steps of scaffolding would ... Full description.

This USGS fact sheet summarizes the occurrence of Balkan Endemic Nephropathy, a serious kidney disease that occurs only in tributary valleys of the Danube River in Romania, Bulgaria, and the former Yugoslavia. There is a close correspondence between the location of affected villages and the occurrence of local coal deposits. Full description.

Mass Wasting is a course handout designed to initiate discussion on the factors involved in mass wasting (eg. creep, solifluction, falls, slides, and flows) and the methods used to prevent mass wasting. Definitions are given for key terms such as angle of repose and lahars. Photographs illustrate the effects of rockslides and slumps. Links are provided to the online Physical Geology resources at Georgia ... Full description.

Sedimentary Rocks: Carbonate Rocks is a course handout meant to accompany the discussion of chemical and biochemical sedimentary rocks. Rock composition is broken into the main categories of limestone and dolostone. Depositional conditions are discussed, including the topics of coral reefs, plankton, and carbonate compensation depth (CCD). There are a few photographs, which display calcareous algae. ...

This is a course handout to accompany the discussion of sedimentary depositional environments. Facies are defined as all of the characteristics of a particular rock unit. The effects of transgressions and regressions on depositional environments are discussed with reference to fluctuations in sea level. These effects are then related to Walther's Law. Diagrams display facies change, and transgressive ... Full description.

The purpose of the handout is to identify the three major types of soils: pedalfer, pedocal, and laterite, and to understand the soil profile. This is accomplished with brief descriptions of the soil horizons and the designation of common elements to pedalfers, pedocals, and laterite soils. The handout is concluded with a discussion of soil erosion. Links are provided to the online Physical Geology ... Full description.
