Interactive Problem-Solving Geography: An Introduction in Chinese Classrooms to Locational Analysis
Wai, Nu Nu; Giles, John H.
Journal of Geography, v105 n4 p155-166 2006
Reform in geography education, as reflected in "Geography for Life: National Geography Standards" (1994) for the U.S.A., favors a constructivist approach to learning. This study examines the acceptance of this approach among students in two upper secondary schools in China. A lesson was developed to illustrate interactive problem solving methods. The students reacted positively to the lesson. The instructional practices stimulating their response and the potential for problem solving geography educational methods in China are discussed.
