Earth and Mind II: A Synthesis of Research on Thinking and Learning in the Geosciences
Kim A. Kastens, Cathy Manduca 2012 Geological Society of America Boulder, CO

(from the GSA website) This volume explores the distinctive ways in which geoscientists use the human senses and mind to perceive, analyze, and explain the workings of the Earth system, and then builds on those insights to suggest how to help students master the thought processes of the geosciences. Written by collaborative teams of geoscientists and cognitive scientists, the discussion includes spatial thinking, temporal thinking, systems thinking, field-based teaching and learning, the nature of expertise in geosciences, and knowledge integration in geoscience education.
