Learning Human Geography. Case Study: The Geography Textbook for the 6th Grade
Cîineanu, Mariana-Doina
Romanian Review of Geographical Education, v7 n2 p43-58 Aug 2018
In this paper, we analyse the 6th grade Geography textbook published in 2018 at the Didactic and Pedagogical Publishing House S.A., Bucharest. The textbook devised in accordance with the school curriculum approved in 2017 began to be used in schools in Romania starting with the school year 2018-2019. The structure of the book (thematic units and subunits) and lessons was briefly analysed. The lessons include activities grouped into five categories: Observe (images, maps, charts, drawings, photos); Discover (tasks); Learn (lesson text); Geo-info (case studies); Apply (tasks). The tasks related to Human Geography included in the first two thematic units were analysed: Knowledge of the world in which we live; Anthroposphere - humans and their activities. The tasks proposed to be solved by the students have diverse difficulty degrees and have been associated with visual materials (photographs, maps, charts, schematic drawings, etc.) or texts.
