Association and Section Publications
The Journal of Geoscience Education (JGE) is the premier peer-reviewed publication for geoscience education research at the undergraduate and pre-college levels. JGE is the publication of record for NAGT, and serves as the only international forum for the publication of research concerning the pedagogy, assessment, and philosophy of teaching and learning about the geosciences. Find more information on subscription options and back issue requests on the Subscriptions page.
In the Trenches is a quarterly print and digital publication for members designed to provide a forum for geosciences education dialog targeting educators in the classroom. It provides a venue for contributors to inform NAGT members about their best teaching ideas, resources or other special topics relevant to our profession that do not lend themselves to more research-focused journals. The idea is to provide a more informal outlet for ideas and experiences that can inform the larger community.
Living with Earth is a collaboration between NAGT, AGI, and author Travis Hudson. The text is aimed at environmental geology class for students with little or no science background and who may not ever take another science course. The informal, reader-friendly presentation is organized around a few unifying perspectives: how the various Earth systems interact with one another; how Earth affects people (creating hazards but also providing essential resources); and how people affect Earth. Greater emphasis is placed on environment and sustainability than on geology, unlike other texts on the subject. Essential scientific foundations are presented—but the ultimate goal is to connect students proactively to their role as stakeholders in Earth's future.
This user-friendly, best-selling laboratory manual examines the basic principles of geology and their applications to everyday life. Students are encouraged to view these principles in terms of natural resources, natural hazards, and human risks. This trusted resource features contributions from highly regarded geologists and geoscience educators, with an exceptional illustration program by Dennis Tasa.
