An Assessment of the Impact of HSGP [High School Geography Project].
Richburg, Robert
This report contains the results of a 1970 survey designed to assess the impact of the High School Geography Project (HSGP). Included is a sample of the thinking of those interested in geographic education concerning the direction of future efforts in the field. Questionnaires were sent to approximately 600 members of the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) and the Association of American Geographers (AAG) and to former trial teachers of the project materials. The results indicated that the overwhelming majority of the responding AAG and NCGE members had heard of the materials, considered them more effective than other means of teaching geography, and intended to use either some of the materials or ideas incorporated from the materials in their classes. The responses from the trial teachers indicated that the majority are still using the materials and consider them more effective compared to other social studies or geography materials. Characteristic and unedited suggestions of AAG members, NCGE members, and trial teachers for work that should be done in geographic education in the 1970s are included. Selected responses of trial teachers in how the materials influenced the way they teach are also presented. (Author/DE)
