All Day Film Screening & Discussion - "The Mask You Live In" (Multi-Day Event)
This film follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's limited definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, these young men confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, to devalue authentic friendships, to objectify women, and to resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become "REAL" men.

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM Resolving the Breadth-depth-inquiry Dilemma in College Science Courses

Event Description:

Instructors of introductory science courses constantly face the dilemma of how to balance the coverage of diverse topics versus an in-depth treatment of key concepts, or spending time helping students learn how to do problem solving and scientific inquiry. We deploy a suite of approaches and assessment tools that allow us to simultaneously address these three competing aspects of breadth, depth, and inquiry. To address a breadth of topics, we provide students with a What-to-Know (WTK) List, and students are responsible for each item, even if that subject is not covered in lecture. This breadth of knowledge is assessed by weekly, online multiple-choice quizzes derived from items on the WTK List.



To assess deep knowledge, we provide students with a list of 12 possible concept-sketch questions for the next exam (three or four exams per semester). For each exam, we display two or three concept-sketch questions from the list, and students answer two questions, drawing and explaining each concept sketch on one side of the paper. Properly answering a concept-sketch question requires students to ahead of time develop complete answers — and therefore gain deep knowledge. For smaller classes, students are required to answer each concept-sketch question (intro courses) or item on the WTK List (upper-level courses) in a composition-book-sized portfolio that is collected and quickly graded for each exam. Use of these portfolios has dramatically increased student understanding and grades.



To assess inquiry skills, students complete each of the chapter-ending Investigations from the textbook, either online or on paper worksheets done in class and in small groups. Using this overall three-pronged approach, students are exposed to and assessed on a broad range of topics, but also need to have in-depth knowledge of 48 key topics. Freed from the requirement that we cover every topic during lectures, class time includes more active learning and time to develop problem-solving and inquiry skills, resolving the breadth-depth-inquiry dilemma.

Presenter Information (Reynolds & Johnson):

Dr. Stephen J. Reynolds received degrees in geosciences from University of Texas at El Paso and University of Arizona. He directed the geologic mapping program of the Arizona Geological Survey, where he produced a new geologic map of Arizona. He currently is a professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, where he does research on cognition and learning, natural resources, and evolution of Southwestern landscapes. He has authored or edited over 200 maps, articles, and reports, ranging from tectonics to climate. He is the author of popular, award-winning textbooks, including Exploring Geology, Exploring Physical Geography, Exploring Earth Science, and Structural Geology of Rocks and Regions. He was President of the Arizona Geological Society and received outstanding alumni awards from UTEP and the University of Arizona.

Julia K. Johnson is a full-time faculty member in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU. Her research involves geoscience education, structural geology, and regional geology. The main focus of her geoscience education research is on student- and instructor-generated sketches (concept sketches) for learning, teaching, and assessment in college geology classes. At ASU, she teaches Introduction to Geology to more than 2,000 students per year in in-person and online classes. Julia is recognized as one of the best science teachers at ASU, and has received student-nominated teaching awards and very high teaching evaluations in spite of her challenging classes. She gives talks and webinars to faculty members across the county about how to redesign their own classes to improve efficiency and student performance at the same time. Julia is coauthor of the Exploring Geology, Exploring Earth Science, and Exploring Physical Geography textbooks, Observing and Interpreting Geology (a lab manual), and publications on geology and science-education research, including an article in the Journal of Geoscience Education on concept sketches.

All Day Film Screening & Discussion - "The Mask You Live In" (Multi-Day Event)
This film follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's limited definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, these young men confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, to devalue authentic friendships, to objectify women, and to resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become "REAL" men.
