Geography in Education. A Bibliography of British Sources, 1870-1970.
Lukehurst, Clare T., Ed.; Graves, N. J., Ed.
Fourteen hundred entries of British works on geography in education comprise this bibliography intended for teachers at the elementary, secondary, and college levels, for students, and for research workers in all branches of education. The purpose is to provide a guide to extensive literature that records a century of progress and achievement in the field. The majority of citations are from published journals and books; however, some of the sources quoted are unpublished. Citations are grouped into seven broad categories: the nature and evolution of geography; curriculum, content, and objectives; mental development in relation to geography teaching; teaching methods; teaching geography overseas; geography and international understanding; and testing geography. Nearly half of the bibliography is devoted to methods, including sub-categories on age ranges, field and local geography, the use of maps, textbooks, and the use of other teaching aids. Alphabetically arranged author entries provide complete bibliographic citations. An author index is included. (SJM)
