A Method for Teaching Topographic Map Interpretation
Schuit, Walter
Journal of Geography, v110 n5 p209-216 2011
Students learn how to read and interpret topographic maps by using a set of simplified map exercise cards. Students learn in the field as opposed to a traditional classroom. Map symbols, distance, direction, form, and relief are among the map interpretation topics taught with this method. The multiple-choice format of the exercise also allows for immediate student feedback. (Contains 26 figures.)
