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.

Undergraduate science instructors are concerned that the traditional lecture centered approach may not be the most effective. This article describes an effort to integrate alternative teaching methods into a small, upper-division course that had previously been taught as a lecture course, and thus impart a current understanding of biogeography to the students. A course on biogeography with a focus ... Full description.

NOTE: This is a large file, 15.5mb in size! A primary obstacle to urban precollege geoscience education is limited access to inquiry-based geoscience experiences that are engaging and relevant to students' lives. Opportunities are reduced by the common misconception that the geosciences are less relevant to urban audiences and by the financial limitations of many urban school districts. This paper ...

In this activity students will work with ice in order to gain a practical application of math concepts. It will evolve into an inquiry-based study to determine if the dimensions of the ice will make a difference in the way the ice floats in the water. The inquiry lesson may lead to further inquiry-based investigations for extended learning in the classroom or home. Full description.
