Why is Geography Education so Important?


Via Seth Dixon
Jennifer Ryan's insight:

Love the question - if you read the articles some good stuff in there. Please share your opinions about Why Geography Matters

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 9, 2013 7:05 PM

This commencement speech from the President of the American Geographical Society highlights the importance of geographic thought and geo-literacy for college graduates.  I share this because (to quote Summer Howarth), "geo-literacy isn't really optional." 

Rola Fahs's curator insight, November 13, 2013 10:04 AM

This is a good read for anyone who is going to be a social studies teacher. 

I am not sure that I would recommend this in my classroom but all teachers can benefit from this. 

He introduces geography as a way to connect with the world. Learning geography adds perspective and insight into the rest of the world. In geography we can pose thought provoking questions to students that gets them to start thinking differently than they do now. 

AWAtt  ...  is a Digital History book; "History is the ship carrying living memories to the future."  Stephen Spender describes us well!
