Core Concepts in Introductory Physical Geography.
Bacon, Robert S.; Green, Jerry E.
Journal of Geography, v80 n3 p104-08 Mar 1981
An analysis of 14 introductory physical geography textbooks yielded 121 core concepts (basic concepts appearing in 7-10 books). The authors suggest that the trend toward overspecialization in introductory geography classes can be reversed if teachers agree to stress core concepts and their relationships to geography as a whole.
