The Habitable Planet

The Habitable Planet | Geography Education | Scoop.it

"The Habitable Planet is a multimedia course for high school teachers and adult learners interested in studying environmental science. The Web site provides access to course content and activities developed by leading scientists and researchers in the field."

Seth Dixon's insight:

Much like the Power of Place resources were created by Annenberg Learner to share World Regional Geography videos, the Habitable Planet has diverse resources for Physical Geography and Environmental Science.  In essence, it is an excellent free online textbook.

This looks like a great site. I'm always impressed with the resources that come out of Annenberg. Many thanks to Seth Dixon for this Scoop.

AP Human Geography Class Wiki

AP Human Geography Class Wiki | Geography Education | Scoop.it

"This wiki exists to cultivate the disciplinary literacy of AP Human Geography Students at GPHS..."


A fun course webpage, with chapter/unit overviews, links, video clips, charts, etc.   What makes this one distinct is that it was collaboratively created by the students working on the unit summaries.  Nice job GPHS APHG students of 2008!

AP Human Geography Course Page

AP Human Geography Course Page | Geography Education | Scoop.it

An excellent AP Human Geography course page with many solid resources.  The bulk of the resources (activities, graphic organizers, articles, etc.) is within the "unit files" and therefore thematically arranged.  Thanks for sharing your resources; you make Windsor High School proud!

Study Guides for "The Cultural Landscape"

Study Guides for "The Cultural Landscape" | Geography Education | Scoop.it

If you need reading guides/study guides for the Rubenstein textbook, the AP Human Geography link has good content.  This page also has good resources for other history/social studies classes (European History, Government, World History, US History, Economics).   This is all the work of Jim Nelsen, teacher extraordinaire from Milwaukee, WI.

Essays on Geography and GIS

Seth Dixon's insight:

This set of 19 short essays (around 3-4 pages each) is a great supplemental text.  I am eager to read them and other resources in the ESRI library.

The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography

The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography | Geography Education | Scoop.it

Lately there has been a lot of chatter online about searching for "chapter study guides."  While this is not the most recent edition of the text, it is a publicly accessible online companion site (hence, no need to have purchased the text to access this). This has numerous "study guide-like" features (reviewing concepts, critical thinking, short essays, etc.) that could be a beneficial for teachers to find resources as well as to give to students for them to use as supplemental materials.

Online Textbook: Nature of Geographic Information

Online Textbook: Nature of Geographic Information | Geography Education | Scoop.it
Seth Dixon's insight:

Need a FREE online textbook about Geospatial information and data for a college course?  This Penn State-produced books works well for undergraduate courses that are not necessarily geared towards geography majors, but getting acquainted with all types of geospatial technologies (GIS, Remote Sensing, GPS, etc.).   As an open-source book it is a tremendous resource.
