New Approaches in Introductory College Geography Courses, Publication No. 4.
Calef, Wesley; And Others
As part of a program to improve college and university training geography, this book contains four course outlines developed by members of the Commission on College Geography of the Association of American Geographers. "A Proposal for a New Geography Course for Liberal Education: Introduction to Geographic Behavior" is an introductory course to basic geographic concepts that emphasizes active student problem solving rather than lectures. "The World Regional Geography Course: Alternative Approaches" is a two-semester course focusing on global geographical processes that uses the lecture-discussion teaching approach. "Introduction to Geography -- A Spatial Approach, A One-Semester Course Outline" studies the locations, distributions and spatial associations of natural and cultural phenomena through a student problem-solving approach. "Introduction to the Study of Geography" is a lecture-oriented course designed for non-majors. Each of the course outlines contains suggested student readings. (Author/DE)
