Jungle of stone : the extraordinary journey of John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood by William Carlsen( Recording )

The extraordinary true story of the rediscovery of the Mayan civilization. In the tradition of The Lost City of Z and Empire of Ice, comes the forgotten tale of 19th century American John Lloyd Stephens's quest to uncover and understand the ancient world's most advanced civilization amid the jungles of Central America.Imagine The Lost City of Z, except the fabled lost jungle civilization really was found--an "Egypt in the Americas" in which 1,500-year-old pyramids and temples were hidden in impenetrable tropical forests, along with evidence of astonishingly sophisticated art, writing, science, and culture.In 1839, when John Lloyd Stephens, a dashing U.S. special ambassador to Central America, and Frederick Catherwood, an acclaimed British architect and draftsman, set out into the unexplored jungles of the Yucatan, Charles Darwin was aboard the H.M.S. Beagle, the Bible was the basic template of history, and most people believed the world was less than 6,000 years old. Deep in the jungles, they stumbled upon the wondrous ruins of the Mayan civilization--an astonishing find that would change western understanding of human history.In Jungle of Stone, William Carlsen uncovers the rich history of the ruins as he follows Stephens and Catherwood's journey through present day Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico. Drawing upon Stephens's journals and Cather's magnificent illustrations--which became the bestselling book Incidents of Travel in Yucatan--Carlsen artfully tells the enthralling story of two great voyagers and the world they discovered

Invasion Ecology. Teacher's Guide [and Student Edition]. CornellScientific Inquiry Series by Marianne E Krasny( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the teacher's guide of the Environmental Inquiry curriculum series developed at Cornell University. It is designed to teach learning skills for investigating the behaviors of non-native and native species and demonstrate how to apply scientific knowledge to solve real-life problems. This book focuses on strange intruders invading parts of the world, threatening the environment and economy, and their impact on ecological balance. The natural links between biology, ecology, and environmental studies and the important connection between science and public policy are illuminated. Three sections present background on the science of ecology and its place in the control of invasive species; protocols for practicing methods that scientists use in monitoring invasive species such as early detection surveys, plot sampling, transect surveys, and decomposition studies; and a series of helpful worksheets to guide students through their own interactive research. The Student Edition is appended. (Khr)

Failure is an option : Reactions to failure in elementary engineering design projects by Matthew Johnson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent reform documents in science education have called for teachers to use epistemic practices of science and engineering researchers to teach disciplinary content (NRC, 2007; NRC, 2012; NGSS Lead States, 2013). Although this creates challenges for classroom teachers unfamiliar with engineering, it has created a need for high quality research about how students and teachers engage in engineering activities to improve curriculum development and teaching pedagogy. While framers of the Next Generation Science Standards (NRC, 2012; NGSS Lead States 2013) focused on the similarities of the practices of science researchers and engineering designers, some have proposed that engineering has a unique set of epistemic practices, including improving from failure (Cunningham & Carlsen, 2014; Cunningham & Kelly, in review). While no one will deny failures occur in science, failure in engineering is thought of in fundamentally different ways. In the study presented here, video data from eight classes of elementary students engaged in one of two civil engineering units were analyzed using methods borrowed from psychology, anthropology, and sociolinguistics to investigate: 1) the nature of failure in elementary engineering design; 2) the ways in which teachers react to failure; and 3) how the collective actions of students and teachers support or constrain improvement in engineering design. I propose new ways of considering the types and causes of failure, and note three teacher reactions to failure: the manager, the cheerleader, and the strategic partner. Because the goal of iteration in engineering is improvement, I also studied improvement. Students only systematically improve when they have the opportunity, productive strategies, and fair comparisons between prototypes. I then investigate the use of student engineering journals to assess learning from the process of improvement after failure. After discussion, I consider implications from this work as well as future research to advance our understanding in this area

Mentor teachers' perception of motivation toward their personal learning and toward their attitude about teaching in an elementary professional development school by Kayeon Lee( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study explores the motivations and attitude changes of three mentor teachers who work at an elementary school in the State College Area School District as a part of a professional development school (PDS) partnership with Florence State University (pseudonym). The research specifically aims to investigate the way that PDS participation affects mentor teachers' perception of their motivation to learn and try new teaching practices, and their attitude toward the job. In addition, the influence of particular PDS activities on mentor-teachers' motivations was examined in this study. Open-ended questionnaires and semi-structured interviews were conducted with a qualitative approach. Findings of this research demonstrated that changes in mentor-teachers' motivation and attitudes have important implications for the role of PDS participants and future professional development programs
