I'm very excited to see a free eText in Human Geography.  I will be looking at this more closely during the next semester and think that geography teachers will see this as a welcome supplemental to their arsenal of resources. This is definitely on the shortlist of best materials on this site.

Me encantó la presentación... dice tantas cosas de una disciplina tan querida (e importante) para mi y que debe tener una relevancia primordial ahora más que nunca.

In Sweden we have the same discussion about geography in school. It´s easy to learn fact about countries but not so easy to develop the spatial thinking skills.

Alex Trebek explains the importnace of geography. Its not all about memorizing where things are, its understanding how and why location has such an impact on history, economy and politics.

This is what ive been saying forever! Schools are leaving Geography out! Lets bring out some fun exciting Geography lessons (e.g. Geocaching, Find the box, geography posters, water testing, daily weather checks, even as simple as what to wear today for K-2nd.) Geography is coming back in Mrs. Jessica's Class ASAP!
