Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The video shows the student describing how rocks can come in many different sizes such as grains of sand and large boulders. The interviewer further probes to find out how the student thinks that something as small as a grain of sand can be a rock.
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,This segment shows the interviewer demonstrating phenomena (water, solid, air) being
Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is trying to find out if the student has prior knowledge about types of rocks by asking her about the stripes on the rock. The student uses the word "metamorphic" and goes on to explain what a metamorphic rock is. The interviewer probes further by asking her why rocks get pressed together and where the stripes may have come from. He then shows her a picture to see if she can connec

go in. None of Co. "H" have reenlisted, nor do I think
any will. They all know that I do not propose to
stay in the service, but whether my example
has any influence on them or not is more than
I can tell. I am neither trying to persuade them
to go in, nor saying anything to keep them from it,
but leave them to decide for themselves. I think those
who reenlist for another three years are entitled
to get praise, bu

I have no doubt you are eating a good turkey
dinner about this time. At least I hope so, and
may you have a good appetite to eat some of the
choice dressing and bosom of the turkey. Next Christ=

have a turkey dinner for me?
I think I remember what I did, and where
I was at, this day two years ago. I was in Romney,

Now, my dear Hala, you must excuse this
hastily written letter. I have written several
letters to-day and am getting tired. I am very
thankful that I have come out as safely as I have.
It is true I have been in some danger, but
I never felt like being afraid in the least. I am
in a good cause and intend to do my duty.

Beem is homesick and looks forward to Christmases spent at home. He seems to miss the traditional turkey dinner most of all.,Falmouth, Va.,
Beem Letter, December 1861 (page 3)
I think if I was there I could get your Christmas gift; but certainly
it would afford me a great deal of pleasure to be able to give
you a gift of some kind, which I would most assuredly do if I
was with you tonight. It will be a dry Christmas to me. We
will have but little to amuse us, and nothing to remind
us that that it is Merry Christmas. But I am very comfortably
situated, boarding with a pleasant and religious family, and
I could not expect anything better while
