Spreading Sea Floors and Fractured Ridges. Crustal Evaluation Education Project. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Investigation.
Stoever, Edward C., Jr.
Crustal Evolution Education Project (CEEP) modules were designed to: (1) provide students with the methods and results of continuing investigations into the composition, history, and processes of the earth's crust and the application of this knowledge to man's activities and (2) to be used by teachers with little or no previous background in the modern theories of sea-floor spreading, continental drift, and plate tectonics. Each module consists of two booklets: a teacher's guide and student investigation. The teacher's guide contains all of the information present in the student investigation booklet as well as: (1) a general introduction; (2) prerequisite student background; (3) objectives; (4) list of required materials; (5) background information; (6) suggested approach; (7) procedure, including number of 45-minute class periods required; (8) summary questions (with answers); (9) extension activities; and (10) list of references. Objectives of the activity in this module include telling how the geography of mid-ocean mountains is different on either side of a fracture zone, drawing a diagram to show the relation between sea-floor spreading direction and direction of rock movement on both sides of a fracture zone, and explaining why earthquakes may occur along part of a fracture zone.
