Geography in the Two-Year Colleges.
Association of American Geographers, Washington, DC.
This examination of the status of geography in U.S. junior colleges begins with a consideration of the role of two-year colleges in higher education, and an appraisal of the place of geography in the context of general education. Results of a broad survey including number of instructors, courses, enrollment, etc. are followed by a detailed examination of the four courses most commonly offered in two-year colleges--economic, world regional, cultural, and physical geography. Consideration is then given to: training and staffing (pre-service and in-service); instructional techniques and strategies; and classroom equipment and library needs. Resource and bibliographic guides in the form of appendices supplement this information. Fourteen recommendations directed to geography instructors and administrators conclude this report. (JLB)
