Activities Using "The State of the World Atlas." Grades 7-12. International Understanding Series.
Hursh, Heidi; Prevedel, Michael
Secondary school teachers in a variety of disciplines will find the teaching activities in this handbook useful in integrating the "State of the World Atlas" into their curricula. Following an activity which introduces students to the atlas, content is divided into three sections focusing on area studies, issues, and research skills. Nine activities in the section on area studies examine geopolitical and cultural groups of nations as well as stereotypes, similarities and differences, and interrelationships among nations. Students consider global issues such as human rights, the wealth of nations, refugees, separatist movements, and the arms race in the section on issues. The section on research contains three activities for applying research skills to the atlas and a list of supplementary activities. Student handouts to accompany activities are provided in a separate section at the end of the book. (LP)
