Development of Geographic Literacy in Students with Learning Disabilities.
Bennett, Wendy M.
This paper addresses issues related to the development of geographic literacy by describing, explaining, and discussing these issues as they relate to the current reform movement in the teaching of geography. Emphasis is placed on how this information relates to students with learning disabilities. The paper emphasizes the importance of effective teaching of geographic literacy in students with learning disabilities. There is a lack of activities related to geography in the special education curriculum and the student's Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P.) does not generally include geography goals. The paper questions the artificial activities that are in place in the special education curriculum. This review of the literature is intended as a search for ideas, strategies, and ways to effectively reach the population of students with learning disabilities. (Contains 37 references.) (EH)
