Product Description
What causes cavities, caves, caverns, and sinkholes in karst topography? This question exploration explains landforms made by the weathering of limestone.

Question Exploration Routines are instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the content enhancement routines earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.

Personally, I use the Concept Enhancement routines to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. I keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto the pages for the Question Exploration and Concept Comparison Frame Routines. This product includes the completed routines, and the student guide blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in. It includes warm ups, worksheets, and recommended videos for review, and it's is in Microsoft Word .doc form so that Ts can customize the discussion to fit the needs of their Ss.

These Concept Enhancement Routines have the following learning objectives and outcomes:
SC.6.E.6.1 Describe and give examples of ways in which Earth's surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition.
SC.6.E.6.2 Recognize that there are a variety of different landforms on Earth's surface such as coastlines, dunes, rivers, deltas, and lakes and relate these landforms as they apply to Florida.
SC.6.E.7.4 Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere.
SC.912.E.6.2 Connect surface features to surface processes that are responsible for their formation.
SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.
SC.912.E.7.8 Explain how various atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic conditions in Florida have influenced and can influence human behavior, both individually and collectively.
