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…

Matsumoto, George I.; Needham, Cathy; Opheim, Michael; Chen, Glenn – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The Tribal Marine Science Workshop has run annually since 2010. The workshop takes place at the Kasitsna Bay Laboratory, owned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and operated by NOAA and the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, near Seldovia, Alaska. It is hosted by the Seldovia Village Tribe, sponsored by the Bureau of…

Hirmas, Daniel R.; Slocum, Terry; Halfen, Alan F.; White, Travis; Zautner, Eric; Atchley, Paul; Liu, Huan; Johnson, William C.; Egbert, Stephen; McDermott, Dave – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Recently, the use of stereoscopic three-dimensional (3-D) projection displays has increased in geoscience education. One concern in employing 3-D projection systems in large lecture halls, however, is that the 3-D effect is reported to diminish with increased angle and distance from the stereoscopic display. The goal of this work was to study that…

DeFelice, Amy; Adams, Jennifer D.; Branco, Brett; Pieroni, Pieranna – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
High school students in a large urban area, undergraduate students, and geoscience faculty at a local college used a placebased pedagogical approach to engage in real geoscience problem-based inquiry in a local urban park. The overarching goals of this project were to learn the potential of place-based geoscience research experiences to: influence…

Wiener, Carlie S.; Matsumoto, Karen – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The marine environment provides a unique context for students to explore both natural and cultural connections. This paper reports preliminary findings on Ecosystem Pen Pals, an ocean literacy program for 4th and 5th graders focused on using a pen pal model for integrating traditional ecological knowledge into marine science. Surveys with…

Gill, Susan E.; Marcum-Dietrich, Nanette; Becker-Klein, Rachel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The Model My Watershed (MMW) application, and associated curricula, provides students with meaningful opportunities to connect conceptual understanding of watersheds to real-world decision making. The application uses an authentic hydrologic model, TR-55 (developed by the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service), and real data applied in…
