Teaching Geography Literacy

Hello Colleagues,

In this article, Could You Draw A Dot Within 50 Miles Of Your House?': Why The U.S. May Have A Geography Literacy Problem I see some teaching and learning challenges and opportunities.

Beginning a class session

Through the years, I’ve had many conversations with adult education instructors about ways in which to start a class session.  Often these conversations include the desire to introduce content and topics into an already overcrowded curriculum. There is also a wish to integrate subject matter with skills in observation, description, hypothesizing, and written/oral communication.  And this is to be done in a short period of time, so that the group can move on to “regular class activities”. What a tall order!!
