Ledley, Tamara Shapiro; Gold, Anne U.; Niepold, Frank; McCaffrey, Mark – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
In recent years, various climate change education efforts have been launched, including federally (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Science Foundation, etc.) and privately funded projects. In addition, climate literacy and energy literacy frameworks have been developed and…

Johnson, Adam N.; Sievert, Regina; Durglo, Michael, Sr.; Finley, Vernon; Adams, Louis; Hofmann, Michael H. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
We investigated connections between the natural and the cultural history of the Flathead Indian Reservation through the integration of geoscience, traditional tribal knowledge, and oral narratives for the purpose of improving Earth Science education in the tribal community. The project served as an avenue for the incorporation of indigenous…

Lukes, Laura A.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
There is a need to understand why some students succeed and persist in STEM fields and others do not. While numerous studies have focused on the positive results of using empirically validated teaching methods in introductory science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, little data has been collected about the student experience in…

McNeal, Karen S.; Libarkin, Julie C.; Ledley, Tamara Shapiro; Bardar, Erin; Haddad, Nick; Elins, Kathy; Dutta, Saranee – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
This study reports on an effort to illustrate the coupling of educational research with ongoing curriculum development to promote effective and evidence-based online learning. The research findings have been used to inform the "EarthLabs" curriculum development team as they revise existing modules and create new modules, in order to…

Soja, Constance M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
In a first-year seminar on mass extinctions, a field-based, paleontology-focused exercise promotes active learning about Earth's biodiversity, form and function, and the biomimicry potential of ancient and modern life. Students study Devonian fossils at a local quarry and gain foundational experience in describing anatomy and relating form to…

Abolins, Mark – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Undergraduates learned to measure, map, and interpret bedding plane attitudes during a semesterlong geology field methods course in a field area where strata dip less than 98. Despite the low dip of the strata, 2011 field course students discovered a half-kilometer-wide structural basin by using digital levels and Brunton pocket transits to…

Cohn, Teresa Cavazos; Swanson, Elisabeth; Him, Gail Whiteman Runs; Hugs, Dora; Stevens, Lisa; Flamm, Devon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Solutions to many environmental challenges now require geoscience expertise, knowledge of global interconnectedness, and an understanding of local cultural nuances, a combination for which geoscientists and our students may not be prepared. The Crow Indian Reservation and its borderlands are a microcosm of these challenges, where geoscience…

Kirkby, Kent C. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
One of my principal goals at the University of Minnesota is to transform the university's entry-level geoscience program into an effective ''concluding'' geoscience course that provides students with a clear understanding of the many interactions between Earth processes and human society. Although place-based learning appeared to be a promising…

Geraghty Ward, Emily M.; Semken, Steven; Libarkin, Julie C. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
We present a mixed-methods approach to community-based assessment design that engages tribal college and university faculty, students, and science educators, as well as experts in cultural knowledge from the Blackfeet and Diné (Navajo) nations. Information from cultural experts, gathered through a combination of sequential surveys and focus group…

Martínez-Álvarez, Patricia; Bannan, Brenda – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Latino bilingual children hold rich understandings, which are underexplored and underutilized in the geoscience classroom. Oftentimes, young Latinos possess unique cultural land experiences shaping their place identities. We consider science as language and culture, and propose place-based geoscience hybrid space explorations that are culturally…

Seraphin, Kanesa Duncan – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The ways in which people view the world, and by extension the ways in which they learn, are shaped by cultural context. As educators striving to build scientific literacy among our students, it is critical to bridge the gaps among disparate cultures, traditional ways of knowing, and Western science. Understanding the value of traditional knowledge…

Sigman, Marilyn; Dublin, Robin; Anderson, Andrea; Deans, Nora; Warburton, Janet; Matsumoto, George I.; Dugan, Darcy; Harcharek, Jana – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
During 2010-2012, three professional development workshops brought together K-12 educators and scientists conducting research in the geographic and ecological context of Alaska's three large marine ecosystems (Bering Sea/Aleutians, Gulf of Alaska, and Arctic Ocean). Educators successfully applied new scientific knowledge gained from their…

Martínez-Peña, Maria Begoña; Gil-Quílez, Maria José – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
This study analyses graphic representations of landscapes, produced by 46 Spanish 10th-grade secondary students and 92 teacher-training students in the last year of their course at the Faculty of Education, and the descriptive power of these drawings in connection with questions posed on the systems being represented. The constituent parts of a…

McNeal, Karen S.; Hammerman, James K. L.; Christiansen, Jonathan A.; Carroll, F. Julian – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Climate change education in the southeastern United States can be challenging. Due to economic factors, as well as the conservative political and faith perspectives typical of the region, high proportions (40%) of the population are not engaged, not convinced, or doubt Earth's climate is changing or that climate change has anthropogenic causes.…
