Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days": Helping Teach the National Geography Standards
Donaldson, Daniel P.; Kuhlke, Olaf
Journal of Geography, v108 n2 p39-46 2009
Consistent with developments in American education pedagogy, geography educators have made great strides exploring a wide range of high- and low-tech methods for teaching and learning geographic concepts. This article draws on a qualitative analysis of essays in which college students discuss tenets of the National Geography Standards in the context of Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days". Most of the students in this study reported that not only did their knowledge of the world increase after completing the course assignment but that their interest in the discipline increased as well.
