The Need for Research in Geography Education: It Would Be Nice to Have Some Data.
Downs, Roger M.
Journal of Geography, v93 n1 p57-60 Jan-Feb 1994
Argues that geography education lacks empirical data that might inform and underpin decisions about standards setting, curriculum design, materials development, teaching strategies, and assessment procedures. Identifies four needs: (1) a new attitude toward research; (2) baseline studies; (3) a research agenda; and (4) a research clearinghouse. (CFR)
