Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (9-12) Geology Elective
3. Explain natural phenomena that shape the surface of Earth, including rock cycles, plate motions and interactions, erosion and deposition, volcanism, earthquakes, weathering, and tides.
 
SC (9-12) Geology Elective
4. Describe the topography of the sea floor and the continents.
  • Describing the formation of continental shelves
  • Explaining changes of continental topography caused by erosion and uplift
  • Example: formation of southern Appalachian Mountains in Alabama
     
    SC (9-12) Geology Elective
    5. Classify rocks as sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic.
  • Identifying characteristics of extrusive and intrusive igneous rocks
  • Describing mineral composition and chemical elements of rocks
  • Describing characteristics of clastic, organic, and chemical sedimentary rocks
  • Explaining texture and composition of rocks
  •  
    SC (9-12) Geology Elective
    7. Describe processes of rock formation.
    Examples: cooling, deposition
  • Explaining factors that control texture and composition of rocks
  • Examples: formation depth, formation size, chemical composition
  • Describing processes of fossil formation
  •  
    SC (9-12) Geology Elective
    8. Explain interactions among topography, climate, organic activity, time, and parent material through which soils are created.
     
    SC (9-12) Geology Elective
    10. Explain the mechanism of plate tectonics.
  • Explaining processes that cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
  • Identifying Earth's main tectonic plates
  • Describing faults and folds and their relationships to tectonic forces
  • Describing technologies used to measure and forecast earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
  •  
    SC (9-12) Geology Elective
    11. Identify mass movements, including topples, slides, spreads, and flows.
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Earth and Space Science
    7. Analyze and interpret evidence regarding the theory of plate tectonics, including geologic activity along plate boundaries and magnetic patterns in undersea rocks, to explain the ages and movements of continental and oceanic crusts.
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Earth and Space Science
    9. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain how constructive and destructive processes (e.g., weathering, erosion, volcanism, orogeny, plate tectonics, tectonic uplift) shape Earth's land features (e.g., mountains, valleys, plateaus) and sea features (e.g., trenches, ridges, seamounts).
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Earth and Space Science
    10. Construct an explanation from evidence for the processes that generate the transformation of rocks in Earth's crust, including chemical composition of minerals and characteristics of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks.
