California's Amazing Geology

California has some of the most distinctive and unique geology in the United States. It is the only state with all three types of plate boundaries, an extraordinary history of earthquakes and volcanoes, and it has many rocks and minerals found nowhere else. The Golden State includes both the highest and lowest point in the continental US and practically every conceivable geological feature known. This book discusses not only the important geologic features of each region in California, but also the complex geologic four-dimensional puzzle of how California was assembled, beginning over 2 billion years ago. The author provides up-to-date and authoritative review of the geology and geomorphology of each geologic province, as well as recent revelations of tectonic history of California’s past. There are separate chapters on some of California’s distinctive geologic resources, including gold, oil, water, coastlines, and fossils. An introductory section describes basic rock and mineral types and fundamental aspects of plate tectonics, so that students and other readers can make sense of the bizarre, wild, and crazy jigsaw puzzle that is California's geological history.

The new edition of this popular textbook, once again, provides an indispensable guide for the next generation of mineralogists. Designed for use on one- or two-semester courses, this second edition has been thoughtfully reorganised, making it more accessible to students, whilst still being suitable for an advanced mineralogy course. Additions include expanded introductions to many chapters, a new introductory chapter on crystal chemistry, revised figures, and an extended plates section containing beautiful colour photographs. Text boxes include historical background and case studies to engage students, and end-of-chapter questions help them reinforce concepts. With new online resources to support learning and teaching, including laboratory exercises, PowerPoint slides, useful web links and mineral identification tables, this is a sound investment for students in the fields of geology, materials science and environmental science, and a valuable reference for researchers, collectors and anyone interested in minerals.

Literature-Based Teaching in the Content Areas: 40 Strategies for K-8 Classrooms is a collection of 40 literature-based strategies to teach Key Stages 1-4 content areas: language arts and reading, social studies, mathematics, science, and the arts. Grounded in theory and research on best practices in each field, the strategies are classroom-tested and classroom-ready, with in-depth descriptions of practical activities. Each strategy describes in detail how to use one or more key books for each of the levels, Key Stage 1-2, Key Stage 3, and Key Stage 4, and also includes extensive book lists for creating classroom text sets. Ideas are also provided to differentiate instruction for English learners and struggling students. The book is full of teaching tools: specific questions and prompts for discussion and writing, graphic organizers and student writing frames, mini-lessons on skills and writing conventions, technology resources, and assessment ideas for each strategy. A teacher can dip into the book and choose a content area, strategy, and books to put to use immediately in the classroom.
