Pelch, Michael A.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
A general consensus exists among the leaders of both developed and developing nations that their citizens should be scientifically literate. Therefore, it is important for educational systems to provide students with access to pertinent scientific knowledge, an appreciation for the scientific processes, and the ability to evaluate scientific…

Perrault, Evan K.; Clark, Scott K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Despite the increasing awareness that sustainability is an issue needing ongoing attention, and despite millions of dollars spent yearly at universities to promote sustainable behaviors, previous research has found college students have primarily a unidimensional understanding of what sustainability encompasses. The current research sought to…

Egger, Anne E.; Kastens, Kim A.; Turrin, Margaret K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize how human activities affect the Earth and how Earth processes impact humans, placing the concept of sustainability within the Earth and Space Sciences. We ask: how prepared are future teachers to address sustainability and systems thinking as encoded in the NGSS? And how can geoscientists…

Houser, Chris; Bishop, Michael P.; Lemmons, Kelly – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Conceptual models have long served as a means for physical geographers to organize their understanding of feedback mechanisms and complex systems. Analytical reasoning provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop conceptual models based upon their understanding of surface processes and environmental conditions. This study…

Holley, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
This study reports on a case study-based curricular intervention designed to help undergraduate engineering students make connections between geoscience and its applications. Teaching through case studies resulted in a measurable and significant improvement in the confidence that students had in their ability to apply geoscience concepts in an…

Webb, Brian S.; Hayhoe, Doug – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Despite an overwhelming scientific consensus, a significant proportion of the American public continues to reject anthropogenic climate change. This disparity is particularly evident among evangelical Christians, for whom theological conservatism, general scientific skepticism, political affiliations, and sociocultural influences may impede their…

Undersander, Molly A.; Kettler, Richard M.; Stains, Marilyne – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Concept inventories have been determined to be useful assessment tools for evaluating students' knowledge, particularly in the sciences. However, these assessment tools must be validated to reflect as accurately as possible students' understanding of concepts. One possible threat to this validation is what previous literature calls the item order…

Liu, Juhong Christie; St. John, Kristen; Courtier, Anna M. Bishop – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Identifying instruments and surveys to address geoscience education research (GER) questions is among the high-ranked needs in a 2016 survey of the GER community (St. John et al., 2016). The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a student-centered assessment instrument to measure course experience in a general education integrated…

Todd, Claire; O'Brien, Kevin J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Anthropogenic climate change is a complicated issue involving scientific data and analyses as well as political, economic, and ethical issues. In order to capture this complexity, we developed an interdisciplinary student and faculty collaboration by (1) offering introductory lectures on scientific and ethical methods to two classes, (2) assigning…

Gates, Alexander E.; Kalczynski, Michael J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
A hands-on game based upon principles of oil accumulation and drilling was highly effective at generating enthusiasm toward the geosciences in urban youth from underrepresented minority groups in Newark, NJ. Participating 9th-grade high school students showed little interest in the geosciences prior to participating in the oil game, even if they…

Carrick, Tina L.; Miller, Kate C.; Hagedorn, Eric A.; Smith-Konter, Bridget R.; Velasco, Aaron A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
The high demand for scientists and engineers in the workforce means that there is a continuing need for more strategies to increase student completion in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors. The challenge lies in finding and enacting effective strategies to increase students' completion of STEM degrees and in recruiting…

Sherman-Morris, Kathleen; McNeal, Karen S. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
This study augments existing literature in understanding student perceptions about the geosciences; we examined the choice of major and science courses taken by 645 students at a large southeastern research university. Differences were examined between underrepresented minority (URM) and nonminority students. We compared responses regarding not…

Spandler, Carl – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Mineralogy is an essential component of Earth Science education, yet many students struggle to obtain adequate comprehension and knowledge of mineralogy during tertiary (postsecondary) degree programs. The use of educational games can be an effective strategy for science teaching as games provide an active learning environment that enhances…

Waldron, John W. F.; Locock, Andrew J.; Pujadas-Botey, Anna – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Many geoscience educators have noted the difficulty that students experience in transferring their classroom knowledge to the field environment. The Geoscience Garden, on the University of Alberta North Campus, provides a simulated field environment in which Earth Science students can develop field observation skills, interpret features of Earth's…

Houser, Chris; Garcia, Sonia; Torres, Janet – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2015
Summer research experiences are an increasingly popular means of increasing awareness of, and developing interest in, the geosciences and other science, technology, engineering, and math programs. We describe and report the preliminary results of a 1-wk Geosciences Exploration Summer Program in the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M…
