Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer wants to find out a student's ideas about how wind and rain can break rock. The student draws a picture of a mountain and the interviewer asks her to talk about it. This strategy helps teachers see how asking students to draw their ideas may bring out students' ideas.

Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer shows the student two different representations of mountains, one smooth and one jagged, and asks her to describe what she sees. As she describes a volcano, the interviewer probes to find out why she thinks it is a volcano, whether a volcano is a mountain, and how a volcano forms a mountain. The segment is an example of using a representation to encourage students to think about their ideas.

Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer appears to be finding out what the student already knows about rocks- what they are and how a rock can be described. The student's description is beyond the basic K-2 idea that rocks come in many sizes and shapes. She does provide ideas about color, and texture and that there are different kinds of rocks, matching the 3-5 essay that says students should "notice the variety of components" . This p

In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The student is asked to divide a piece of aluminum foil into the smallest piece possible. The interviewer continues to probe what would happen each time you make it smaller, specifically probing to find out if the smallest possible piece would still have the same properties as the whole and whether there would be a point where you couldn't divide it any more. It was evident that the interviewer was trying to prob

A Colonial Legacy in Miskito Turtle Knowledge (Nicaragua)
Over the past several decades the increasing prevalence of natural resource crises has led many ecologists to seek alternatives to Western resource use paradigms. Primary amongst these alternatives are systems guided by indigenous knowledge (IK). It is commonly presumed that these systems represent institutions uncorrupted by the exploitative hand of Western culture and state domination and therefore hold the key to rectifying the unsustainable behaviors of Western societies.

Star Library: Counting Eights: A First Activity in the Study and Interpretation of Probability
Students explore the definition and interpretations of the probability of an event by investigating the long run proportion of times a sum of 8 is obtained when two balanced dice are rolled repeatedly. Making use of hand calculations, computer simulations, and descriptive techniques, students encounter the laws of large numbers in a familiar setting. By working through the exercises, students will gain a deeper understanding of the qualitative and quantitative relationships between theoretical p
