The Earth Scientist, Volume XXVII, Issue 2, Summer 2011
Contained in this very special issue is an article exploring the steps, hurdles and frustrations encountered when teachers not specifically trained in the Earth sciences, suddenly find themselves assigned to teach the discipline. The next article introduces a comprehensive, 20 day unit on natural cycling of energy and matter. Another article seeks to eliminate student’s misconceptions surrounding radioactive decay and radioactive dating, through the use of hands-on activities. Another article deals with dispelling, through the use of hands-on activities, the misconceptions of middle school students regarding the formation of the Grand Canyon. A unique article promotes geographic literacy of African environments through the application of map exercises. Another useful article explores the use of three guided student explorations of Sky in Google Earth. A remarkable article explores the integration into the classroom of audio, Earth and space science news stories. A fine article is included which shares ten examples of utilizing existing Gigapixel Panoramas in the Earth and space science classroom. And finally, acknowledging that the end of each school year presents its own unique set of challenges, an article explains the use of student choice in a solar system unit, to increase positive classroom behavior near the end of the school year.

Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5
Authors: By Members of the 2005 "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" Committee; Prepared for the Presidents of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine

In the face of so many daunting near-term challenges, U.S. government and industry are letting the crucial strategic issues of U.S. competitiveness slip below the surface. Five years ago, the National Academies prepared Rising Above the Gathering Storm, a book that cautioned: "Without a renewed effort to bolster the foundations of our competitiveness, we can expect to lose our privileged position." Since that time we find ourselves in a country where much has changed--and a great deal has not changed.
