Building Conceptual Understanding in Young Scientists.
Hawley, Duncan
Journal of Geoscience Education, v50 n4 p363-71 Sep 2002
Describes the use of a new pedagogic approach to geology used to create a sequence of investigative activities enabling students to speculate, hypothesize, observe, test, reason, and infer about the characteristics of rocks. The approach is framed by two questions: (1) What are the key characteristics of different rock groups?; and (2) How did the rocks acquire these different characteristics? (Author/MM)
