Geography for life : National geography standards 1994 by Geography Education Standards Project( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These geography standards are subtitled "What Every Young American Should Know and Be Able To Do In Geography", and constitute a set of voluntary benchmarks that every school and school district may use as guidelines for developing their own curricula. The standards for grades k-4, 5-8, and 9-12 specify the essential subject matter, skills, and perspectives that all students should have in order to attain high levels of competency. The standards provide every parent, teacher, curriculum developer, and business and policy leader with a set of challenging expectations for all students. The purpose of standards for geography is to bring all student up to internationally competitive levels to meet the demands of a new age and a different world. For the United States to maintain leadership and prosper in the 21st century, the education system must be tailored to the needs of productive and responsible citizenship in the global economy. The guide is divided into 8 chapters: (1) "The Geographic View of Our World"; (2) "The Components of Geography Education"; (3) "Geographic Skills and Perspectives"; (4) "The Subject Matter of Geography"; (5) "National Geography Standards: Grades k-4"; (6) "National Geography Standards: Grades 5-8"; (7) "National Geography Standards: Grades 9-12"; and (8) "Student Achievement in Geography." A conclusion discusses thinking geographically and the role of parents in geography education. Five appendices and a glossary complete the document. (Dk)

Three papers prepared for the Greyston Conference held at Columbia University October 18-20, 1964 and one paper resulting from conference discussions and inquiries by geographer-participants focus upon current research needs and opportunities for improvement in geographic education for elementary grades (ages 6-12). The four titles under which ideas are presented are: 1) What Does the Curriculum Worker Want From Research in Geographic Education?" urging the development of programs which include new content, sequences, materials and methods, an interdisciplinary approach, and better ways for providing individual learning; 2) "The Psychologist Looks at Spacial Concept Formation: Children's Concepts of Space and Time" describing a framework of conceptualization as a developmental sequence requiring that a child have the needed level of mental operations in order to grasp comprehensive ideas in geography; 3) "Suggestions for Research in Geographic Education" including six major topics for research in geography education, namely, inventories of prior research, the learning process, curriculum development, instructional materials and equipment, measurement, and teacher preparation; 4) "Some Opportunities for Geography in the U.S. Office of Education" identifying ways that geographic education and research can be supported by the U.S. Office of Education.

A Handbook for geography teachers by Robert E Gabler( Book )

7 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepared as a basic reference for in-service programs designed to improve geography instruction at the elementary and secondary levels, the Handbook gives one concise summary of the discipline for curriculum directors, social studies supervisors, and education faculty members in colleges and universities. The stated basic need in geography instruction is for concept development and the stressing of ideas rather than simple facts. To help teachers recognize the transformation in geographic education, the objectives of instruction are clearly defined. Concepts that provide the bonds of continuity for the discipline, the philosophic justification for geography, and its basis and definition are discussed, along with the recommended structure of curriculum. New equipment, materials, and sources available to teachers are listed. Chapters on urban geography, physical geography (weather, climate), population, and resources serve to introduce the reader to a systematic human or cultural topic within the geography discipline. Teaching methods and suggested activities and projects are outlined for each grade level. (Jmb)

Map and globe skills : K-8 teaching guide by Barbara J Winston( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is intended for those who wish to design or evaluate a map and globe skills program across several grade levels. The introduction discusses general considerations underlying effective map and globe skills instruction. A grade-by-grade outline of a map and globe skills program provides recommendations for the following categories: using symbols, finding location, orienting and using directions, using scale and finding distance, and selecting media (I.E., comparing advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of media, including maps or globes, for communicating different kinds of information). For each category, learning suggestions are made for developing supportive concepts and skills. For example, at the kindergarten level, under the category of "Using Symbols," one of the skills that children should be taught is that of reporting information. The children might do this by constructing a three-dimensional model on the floor of the classroom using blocks, toy cars, and trucks to model a familiar scene. The guide concludes with a five-page reference list. (Rm)
