Authoritative text, clear photographs and a systematic approach help you to cut through the complicated identification process and recognize a specimen easily. Photo-Encyclopedic Approach Each entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight the rock or mineral's chief characteristics and distinguishing features. Accompanying colour-coded bands provide clear, at-a-glance facts for quick reference. In addition, each mineral entry features an illustration showing the crystal system to which the mineral belongs.

To help in the initial stages of rock identification, a clear visual key illustrates the differences between igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, then guides the reader to the correct rock entry.

Grounded in theory and best-practices research, this practical text provides teachers with 40 strategies for using fiction and non-fiction trade books to teach in five key content areas: language arts and reading, social studies, mathematics, science, and the arts. Each strategy provides everything a teacher needs to get started: a classroom example that models the strategy, a research-based rationale, relevant content standards, suggested books, reader-response questions and prompts, assessment ideas, examples of how to adapt the strategy for different grade levels (K–2, 3–5, and 6–8), and ideas for differentiating instruction for English language learners and struggling students. Throughout the book, student work samples and classroom vignettes bring the content to life.
