Growing Pebbles and Conceptual Prisms - Understanding the Source of Student Misconceptions about Rock Formation.
Kusnick, Judi
Journal of Geoscience Education, v50 n1 p31-39 Jan 2002
Analyzes narrative essays--stories of rock formation--written by pre-service elementary school teachers. Reports startling misconceptions among preservice teachers on pebbles that grow, human involvement in rock formation, and sedimentary rocks forming as puddles as dry up, even though these students had completed a college level course on Earth Science. Includes 25 references. (Author/YDS)
