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.…

Ramamurthy, Karthikeyan Natesan; Hinnov, Linda A.; Spanias, Andreas S. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Modern data collection in the Earth Sciences has propelled the need for understanding signal processing and time-series analysis techniques. However, there is an educational disconnect in the lack of instruction of time-series analysis techniques in many Earth Science academic departments. Furthermore, there are no platform-independent freeware…

Kastens, Kim A.; Pistolesi, Linda; Passow, Michael J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Research has shown that spatial thinking is important in science in general, and in Earth Science in particular, and that performance on spatially demanding tasks can be fostered through instruction. Because spatial thinking is rarely taught explicitly in the U.S. education system, improving spatial thinking may be "low-hanging fruit" as…

Dublin, Robin; Sigman, Marilyn; Anderson, Andrea; Barnhardt, Ray; Topkok, Sean Asiqluq – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
We have developed the traditional science fair format into an ocean science fair model that promoted the integration of Western science and Alaska Native traditional knowledge in student projects focused on the ocean, aquatic environments, and climate change. The typical science fair judging criteria for the validity and presentation of the…

Surpless, Benjamin; Bushey, Michelle; Halx, Mark – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Although science educators at all levels have focused on teaching students scientific literacy for nearly five decades, studies indicate that the average student remains far from scientifically literate. To address this issue at the local level, faculty at Trinity University, in San Antonio, Texas, significantly revised the curriculum of an…

Montgomery, Homer; Donaldson, Katherine – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
This study is a research project focused on the implementation of problem-based learning in an honors, paleontology-oriented, Earth Science course. The course, the Age of Dinosaurs, is taught at the University of Texas at Dallas to undergraduates from a range of majors who seek core-curriculum science credit. All class work is centered on fossils…

Cox, Helen; Kelly, Kimberle; Yetter, Laura – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
This curriculum and instruction paper describes initial implementation and evaluation of remote-sensing exercises designed to promote post-secondary climate literacy in the geosciences. Tutorials developed by the first author engaged students in the analysis of climate change data obtained from NASA satellite missions, including the LANDSAT,…

Ellwein, Amy L.; Hartley, Laurel M.; Donovan, Sam; Billick, Ian – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Authentic scientific data, when richly contextualized, can provide the basis for compelling learning experiences. Many undergraduate students either do not have access to primary data, or if they do, the data are so abstract that student engagement is limited. Here, we describe contextual information and data-rich, student-centered activities we…
