These texts are excellent vehicles to achieve the four goals of this course: learning about earth science; learning how to do research, so that a student becomes an active user of texts rather than a passive, just turn the next page, user; learning how to write a technical essay; and learning how to order items according to their logical relationship. The activities in this book provide a modern perspective on the earth's crust. Students will study rocks and minerals and learn about various geological processes. Each of the twelve teaching units in this book is introduced by a color transparency that emphasizes the basic concept of the unit and presents questions for discussion. Reproducible student pages provide reinforcement and follow-up activities. The teaching guide offers descriptions of the basic concepts to be presented, background information, suggestions for enrichment activities, and a complete answer key.
