Oh my god, I love plate tectonics! But, try reading your textbook before asking us to do your homework.

How Does The Slow Movement Of Crustal Plates Change The Earths Surface To Form Volcanic Eruptions And Earthquakes? Can Someone Describe It?

shan tell us what you "think" might be the answer and we'll attempt to guide you. Its important for your mind to do some of the work rather than us giving you a box of knowledge. My teachers used to say the same thing about copying from an encyclopedia.

what's a collins write?

@Shan6,
I bet you think I'm joking about loving PT. I'm not. I talk about it in bars with my friends when and have to stop when their eyes start to glaze over.

DP's right - you start, we'll guide.

@dadpad,
A Writing to Learn approach helps students explore, engage in, and apply new information as they write. The Collins Program is designed to, “help teachers in all content areas achieve their goals by requiring students to think on paper. This is accomplished by using frequent, usually short, writing assignments to increase students’ involvement in lessons, check on their understanding of concepts, or promote their thinking about content.” (Collins) Students may be asked to:

* “List relevant information they “know” about a new concept or topic just before it is presented to them.
* Put a concept from the text or another source into their own words " to “translate” it or summarize it.
* Make a connection between a concept from class and something else they know about or have experienced in their own lives.
* Explain how ideas are similar (despite their differences) or different (despite their similarities).” (Collins)

@Shan6,
Absolutely!

That is one form of plate tectonics called uplifting. The Himalayas are a result of India crashing into Asia.

Do you think that volcanic mountains can be included as part of your write up?
