Building Sequential Geography Skills, K-12.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia. Office for Equity Education.
Geography skills for elementary and secondary grades are outlined in this teacher's guide. The teaching and learning of geography skills is a developmental process. Once introduced and understood, skills must be used repeatedly and in different situations if they are to become part of the students' equipment for learning. A planned program for skill building and learning is needed to help students transfer these skills into customary behavior in our modern society. The map skills outlined focus on direction, scale, location, symbols, and comparison and inference. Skills are outlined for individual grades at the elementary level and as a whole at the secondary level. (RM)
