Jo, Injeong
Geography Teacher, v15 n1 p43-46 2018
This 45 minute inquiry lesson can be used for a high school world geography or AP Human Geography course when the class discusses various issues regarding world energy resources. The lesson focuses on two particular issues: fossil fuel dependency and the growing energy demand. Students will examine the geographic distribution of current energy production and consumption, analyze the relationship among energy accessibility, economic development, and population growth to make predictions on future trends, and speculate on policy implications for energy and the environment in different countries. Students will work with web-based maps to understand fossil fuel dependency and growing energy demand. The lesson was designed for teachers to initiate the inquiry process and set the context by ASKING geographic questions, then to have students engage in the inquiry process by ACQUIRING and mapping geographic data.
