This newsletter presents practical information of interest to geography teachers at the elementary, secondary, and college levels. Typical issues contain practical teaching suggestions, reports of experimental programs, information about new teaching materials, fieldwork, syllabuses, viewpoints, and letters. This particular issue provides practical suggestions submitted by junior and senior high school geography teachers who participated in the Canadian Association of Geographers' Competition One held in 1974-75. Included are (1) suggestions about how to teach geography through the use of songs; (2) a land-use mapping exercise; (3) an activity which teaches students to stake a mining claim; (4) a project which involves students in mapping a city with specific characteristics; and (5) practical applications for a local urban study involving students in an inventory of specific places within and around their local community which they frequent on a popular basis. Critical reviews of geography books and journals are also included. The Newsletter is published three times a year in March, July, and November. (Author/RM)
