World Cultural Geography without Maps, How Can We Find Our Way? An Assessment of Implementing Map Use in Senior High School World Cultural Geography Classes
This article is designed to illustrate the critical importance of utilizing cartographic representations, i.e., maps in aiding in the increase of academic scores in regards to World Geography at the 10th grade level. The issue of using maps to better a student's comprehension of various world cultures is essential. It is my contention that the relevance of map usage in modern World Geography classes is a must. The most seasoned Geography teachers at the high school level that I have interviewed, state while compiling my data for this article, that there is a distinct correlation between map usage and Geographic educational success, i.e., higher test scores on standardized World Geography exams.
