Discovering Earth Science, 2nd Edition, authored by Stephen Reynolds and Julia Johnson, is a cutting-edge textbook tailored for an initial college geology course, such as earth science. This pioneering, visually stunning book was crafted following cognitive and educational research on how learners perceive, absorb, and explore.

Nearly all information within the book is structured around 2,600 images and captivating illustrations, rather than extensive blocks of text. These annotated sketches aid learners in visualizing geologic processes and concepts, and are suitable for the way most instructors already deliver lessons. To reduce mental strain and allow learners to concentrate on one essential geologic process or concept at a time, the book comprises solely of two-page spreads organized into 20 chapters. Each chapter functions as a learning cycle, commencing with a visually appealing two-page spread about a compelling geologic issue. Every dual-paged spread encapsulates a self-contained block of information about a specific topic, emphasizing geologic principles, processes, characteristics, and methodologies. These spreads facilitate learners in assimilating and structuring geologic information in a fresh and stimulating manner. Each chapter concludes with an “Investigation” that challenges learners with a problem pertinent to a virtual location.

Inquiry is interwoven throughout the book, exemplifying how scientists explore queries. The title of each dual-paged spread and topic heading poses a query intended to encourage readers to reflect on the subject and become curious and inspired to delve further for answers. Most two-paged spreads incorporate a Before You Depart This Page checklist that underscores the crucial aspects and expectations from learners before advancing. This checklist incorporates learning objectives for the spread and offers a clear channel for the teacher to direct the learner to the essential elements. The items on these checklists are compiled into a comprehensive What-to-Know List furnished to instructors, enabling them to modify or append entries to align with educational aims and to distribute to learners before they commence studying the book.

Novelties in This Revision
• The entire text has undergone substantial revisions to enhance clarity and conciseness.
• Every chapter features notable additions and enhancements, including fresh images, revised figures, and restructuring.
• New font styles enhance readability on portable electronic devices.
• Over 180 new images represent a broader geographical range and deliver more precision and clarity regarding various processes and features, whether terrestrial, atmospheric, or aquatic.
• The text integrates new and revised figures.
• Added spreads and data focus on sedimentary surroundings and impact craters, and refined coverage on climate variations.
• The text embodies novel ideas and presents fresh data on themes such as Pluto, comets, satellite temperatures, and sea-level fluctuations.
• Text boxes are sequentially numbered to direct learners to read in a specified sequence. McGraw-Hill’s Connect (accessible as an optional, add-on feature) is the sole integrated learning platform that empowers learners by dynamically adapting to provide precisely what they require, when they require it, and how they require it, enabling class time to be more productive. Connect allows educators to seamlessly assign homework, quizzes, and exams and automatically assesses and records students’ performance scores. Questions are randomized to deter sharing of solutions and may include multi-step resolutions to navigate learners’ learning journey should they encounter challenges.


Author Background

Julia Okay. Johnson attained an M.S. and Ph.D. in structural geology and geoscience education. Dr. Johnson serves as a full-time faculty member in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University (ASU), where she educates Introduction to Geology to nearly 1,000 students annually and supervises the associated introductory geology laboratories. She also oversees the introductory geology instructional initiatives of the School of Earth and Space Exploration, aiding other instructors in incorporating active learning and inquiry into large lecture courses. The primary focus of her geoscience education research revolves around student- and instructor-generated sketches for learning, teaching, and evaluation in university geology courses. Prior to joining ASU, she conducted groundwater exploration of copper deposits and maintained full-time teaching roles in the Maricopa County Community College District, instructing physical geology and environmental geology.

Stephen J. Reynolds earned a B.A. from the University of Texas at El Paso, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in geosciences from the University of Arizona. Dr. Reynolds functions as a professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, where he has taught regional geology, earth resources, evolution of landscapes, field studies, and teaching methodologies. He has overseen the geologic framework and mapping program of the Arizona Geological Survey, finalizing a new Geologic Map of Arizona. As a National Association of Geoscience Teachers distinguished speaker, he has traversed the nation delivering lectures and workshops on incorporating active learning and inquiry into large introductory geology courses. He is frequently invited to national seminars and symposiums on active learning, visualization, and teaching. Dr. Reynolds is the author of the highly successful Discovering Geology.
