The Image of Geography Equals the Structure of Its Curriculum and Courses.
Schmudde, Theodore H.
Journal of Geography, v86 n2 p46-47 Mar-Apr 1987
Notes that the recent outcry for geographic literacy often stresses place-location geography, the weakest argument for including geography in the elementary and secondary school curriculum. Maintains that K-12 geography courses must clearly define those skills, world patterns, and conceptual frames of reference that geographers consider essential for a basic understanding of the world.
