Independent Evaluation
The highlight of this appropriately named textbook "Visualizing EArth Science" is the variety and amount of images found throughout the book.  The images clearly illustrate processes and principles of Earth Science and would help visual learners who~may struggle with the text.

There are a lot of text featuers, such as photo captions and descriptions, learning objectives, vocabulary terms are pulled out of the text, concept checks, and many more.  The actual text may be a little advanced for struggling readers, but the images will help with that.

The book covers most of the core well but goes beyond what is found in the Utah State Core (chapters on evolution, the rock cycle, and rocks/minerals).  The astronomy section is a little slim~but covers the basics.

All teacher resources were not reviewed because it requires a password to access.  It appears that there are lots of resources (test banks, lecture notes, etc.) but they were not available at the time of the review.
