Global Geography. A Teacher's Guide.
Backler, Alan L.
Intended for use with grades six through nine, "Global Geography" is a series of ten 15-minute video programs that help students think their way through important issues and increase their understanding of world geography. The programs fit easily into normal classroom schedules and support the content of most existing course sequences. This guide is designed to help teachers use the video programs for their fullest possible instructional value. Each of the lessons, keyed to the video programs, contains a summary of the conceptual and thematic foundations of the video program, a summary of what appears on the screen, a glossary of key terms, and suggestions for activities before and during the program to help students understand the issues that have been introduced. In addition, each lesson includes discussion questions for use after viewing and ideas for activities with local application, so teachers can help students understand how the fundamental themes of world geography have relevance in their own communities. A list of supplementary readings and video materials is included as are reproducible handouts to go with the lessons. A fold-out correlation matrix relates each "Global Geography" program to chapters in the geography textbooks most commonly used in middle and junior high schools. Black and white photographs are included. (JB)
