The Burgess and Hoyt Models

The Burgess and Hoyt Models | Hum Geo | Scoop.it

It is possible in many cities to identify zones with a particular type of land use - eg a residential zone. Often these zones have developed due to a combination of economic and social factors. In some cases planners may have tried to separate out some land uses, eg an airport is separated from a large housing estate.

 

The concentric and sector models in one news article?  The BBC is showing once again the possibilities available if only the United States taught more geography in the schools.

Useful to develop understanding of the models of urban landuse zones within cities.

Study Guides for "The Cultural Landscape"

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.

Twitter for [Geography] Teachers: Intro & Signing Up

Twitter for [Geography] Teachers: Intro & Signing Up | Hum Geo | Scoop.it

"I just returned a few days ago from a great week in Cincinnati, reading AP Human Geography exams with 400 colleagues from all over the country. In our conversations during the reading, I've come across a number of these folks, many of them high school teachers, who are interested in using Twitter but have no idea where to start.

 

What I'm hoping to do in the next few entries is give a beginner's guide to using Twitter, specifically geared toward folk who are completely lost at how to begin. I'll also be working toward some 'best practices' once the basics are out of the way."
