Frontiers in Geographical Teaching. Second Edition.
Chorley, Richard J., Ed.; Haggett, Peter, Ed.
Composed of three parts, "Concepts,""Techniques," and "Teaching," this volume of essays by British geographers emerged from the editors' geography education courses and symposia at Cambridge University. It is addressed to two questions: what is happening in geography? and, what impact does this have on school geography? "Concepts" has seven essays dealing with the philosophy of geography and recent trends. The "Techniques" section includes essays on field work, quantitative methods in geomorphology, urban social geography, scale components, and physical planning. "Teaching" has two articles by American geography educators on secondary and college geography instruction in Canada and the United States. In addition, there is a similar article on British geography instruction and another entitled "Teaching the New Africa." A final essay by the editors sums up the entire volume and details model theory in geography instruction. (DJB)
