Teachers' Concepts of Map-Skill Development
Hanus, Martin; Havelková, Lenka
Journal of Geography, v118 n3 p101-116 2019
Maps are an increasingly used source of information and it is therefore essential to develop map skills in students. A fundamental factor affecting the choice of map skills and the way they are developed is the teacher and his/her concept of map work. Based on the results of a survey and semi-structured interviews among Czech teachers, this study identifies three basic conceptual types of teachers: "Navigators" and "Problem-Oriented" and "Source-Oriented" teachers. Similarities with teachers' concepts of map-skill development identified in previous studies are discussed together with means of improvement.
