Geotours Worksheet Quizzes - Coursepacks

The full coursepacks listed above contain the GEOTOURS WORKSHEETS Quizzes, based on the First Edition of the Geotours workbook. In July 2017, we released new quizzes that match the Second Edition of the Workbook. If you would like to update your current coursepack downloaded prior to July 2017, or you simply wish to only use the new GEOTOURS Worksheets rather than the full coursepack, you can download the Worksheets below and add them to your existing course.

Enhanced Art PowerPoints

These slides take the book’s narrative art and photographs and adapt them to the PowerPoint environment. Images are properly sized for presentation, related sets of images are delivered on sequenced slides, and labeling has been streamlined so it doesn’t clutter the screen. Supplemental photographs have been added where appropriate, think-pair-share slides help break up your lecture with class discussion, and animations and videos are included as links directly within the lecture slides.

Test Bank

The Test Bank has been developed using the Norton Assessment Guidelines and each chapter consists of three question types classified according to Norton’s taxonomy of knowledge types:

1. Factual questions test students' basic understanding of facts and concepts.
2. Applied questions require students to apply knowledge in the solution of a problem.
3. Conceptual questions require students to engage in qualitative reasoning and to explain why things are as they are.

Questions are further classified by section and difficulty, making it easy to construct tests and quizzes that are meaningful and diagnostic.
