Cultural Geography and the Social Studies Curriculum. Humans & Environment Learning Program (HELP).
In creating a continuous-integrated-sequential curriculum for grades 5-8, educators must raise and answer a series of questions to guide them in their decision-making. This paper raises and answers questions pertinent to the creation of a curriculum in cultural geography. Among the topics addressed are teaching methods, learning processes, curriculum organization, instruction materials/community resources, essential social science concepts for inclusion, and assessment. An examination of geography, specifically cultural geography is made, including important concepts, student skills, and classroom/field-based, learner activities. A list of 40 selected references is included. (DB)
