Teaching Place-Names within the Cognitive Psychology Model.
Mardon, Austin Albert
Efforts to develop geographic literacy, specifically "place-name" knowledge, need to be based in an understanding of cognitive psychological principles. This paper argues that developing knowledge of place-names, including memorization of such names, is important if students are to achieve geographic literacy. A cognitive psychology model of how memory functions in terms of place-name knowledge is presented. (DB)
