Cohen, Saul B.
Social Education, v52 n4 p248-50 Apr-May 1988
Discusses public concern over geographic illiteracy among elementary and secondary students in the United States. Describes place identification, place content, spatial patterns and relations, and theory as the interrelated components of geographic learning. Asserts that, although universities must necessarily emphasize the latter two, elementary and secondary schools should not limit their curriculum to the first two. (JDH)
