Gould, Stephen Jay – Journal of Geological Education, 1984
Presents a twofold approach to teaching basic geology based on five principles to make science accessible to students who think they are bored with or afraid of the subject. The approach focuses on: appealing to the mind (to attack boredom) and appealing to the emotions (to attack fear). (BC)

Chapman, John J.; Wilcox, John T. – Journal of Geological Education, 1983
Sedimentary patterns and hydraulic effects can be studies in model streams which are not to scale. The "Western River" is such a model which is being used effectively at Western Carolina College. Construction of the model, student exercises, and observations made when using the model are discussed. (Author/JN)

Boucot, A. J. – Journal of Geological Education, 1983
Suggests that earth scientists become active in the creationist debate by making sure that the religious concept creationism is not taught in schools and that well-based, informative material about organic evolution, earth's age, and nature of stratigraphic record are employed by science teachers. (Author/JN)

Newell, Norman D. – Journal of Geological Education, 1983
Suggests that educators and scientists publicize the nature of creationism and expand science education for nonscientists in schools and colleges since the general public lacks sufficient familiarity with science to evaluate misleading creationist claims. Includes comments on the general decline in science education. (JN)

Wielert, Jan S. – Journal of Geological Education, 1983
The Almond model of public opinion can be modified to produce an issue-polarization model of the creation-evolution debate. Suggests that the nonattentive public may hold more potential for expanding the ranks of pro-evolution attentives than for expanding the ranks of those favoring creationism. (JN)

Eglin, Paula G.; Graham, Mildred W. – Journal of Geological Education, 1982
Some contentions of scientific creationism that conflict with accepted principles of geology (catastrophism, fossil records, earth's age, rock formation, second law of thermodynamics) are reviewed, demonstrating that these claims are based not on scientific research or reasonable conjecture but on Biblical references.

Strahler, Arthur N. – Journal of Geological Education, 1982
Explains a new approach by creationists to pass state legislation which supports their philosophy yet sidesteps the issue of separation of church and state by avoiding direct mention of God, the Bible, or Divine Creation. Warns of the ramifications of such legislation to science education and general education. (DC)
