Kim Kastens, D. Kaplan, K. Christie-Blick 2001 Journal of Geoscience Education v49 n3 p249-266
Improvements in the instructional materials used in the prototype version of the Where are We program were accomplished through formative evaluation. These improvements include replacement of text-based instructions with a voiceover demo, development of lessons to overcome common misconceptions, development of lessons to model successful map-using strategies, additional assessment tools for teachers, and more and prompter feedback for students.
