Geography In-Service Course. Teacher's Guide.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Curriculum Development.
The teaching guide for an elementary geography in-service course provides a framework for broad geographic understandings. The emphasis is upon helping teachers better understand the structure of geography themselves so they may implement a social studies program in which students use the facts of geography to develop understandings of basic concepts and skills in critical analysis. Eight major areas are: Our Globe and Grid; The Essence and Use of Maps; Climate and Man; The Face of the Earth; Resources, Man, and His Environment; Urban Man; World Regions; and Japan: A Regional Study. Each unit is organized around a number of problems, generalization and understandings, concepts, tools and resources, methods of approach, and activities that are related to the unit topics. The 16-clock-hour course includes eight 2-hour sessions. An appendix is included that lists transparencies by title or content. (SJM)
