Geopolitics and "The Courage to Teach": Identity, Integrity and the Subject of Political Geography
Flint, Colin
Journal of Geography, v101 n2 p63-67 Mar 2002
Previous literature discussing and exemplifying the teaching of political geography has emphasized the material to be disseminated. Building upon those contributions, this paper offers a means of connecting student, teacher, and subject matter. Using the perspective of Parker Palmer, as illustrated in his book "The Courage to Teach," it is suggested that placing the subject at the center of the classroom will result in the effective teaching of political geography. Two classroom exercises are used to exemplify the argument.
