Defining Geography: What is Where, Why There, and Why Care?

Defining Geography: What is Where, Why There, and Why Care? | Geography is Everywhere.... | Scoop.it
One reason why geography has languished in the curricula of many American schools is that so few people understand the nature of the discipline or its relevance to our everyday lives. What is geography? What is its unique perspective? What do geographers do? Why is geography important? Why should we teach (and learn) geography in the schools? These are questions that have gone largely unanswered in American education. This brief essay presents an easily taught, understood, and remembered definition of geography.

Since this site is updated daily and organized chronically, finding some of the best posts from the past can be difficult for someone new to the site.  Some of the posts are on current events and not as relevant several years after the fact, but I want to make it easier to find the older posts that are still relevant today more easily accessible.  I’ve organized some of more ‘evergreen’ posts by the AP Human Geography curriculum unit headings as well as ‘shortlist’ for each unit.  Additionally, this Story Map will also guide you on how to get more out of this website.         

  1. Geography: It’s Nature and Perspectives (shortlist)
  2. Population and Migration (shortlist)
  3. Cultural Patterns and Processes (shortlist)
  4. The Political Organization of Space (shortlist)
  5. Agriculture, Food Production and Rural Land Use (shortlist)

India: the curious case of a new pan-regionalism

India must realize that large republics, with a strong federal structure and the vibrancy of diverse and even conflicting regional and sub regional interests, make for a colourful democracy, a better home for liberty and a safer haven against tyranny.

'Better streets will make Delhi safer for women'

'Better streets will make Delhi safer for women' | Geography is Everywhere.... | Scoop.it
That Delhi is India’s rape capital is a fact repeatedly stressed by crime statistics, but recent studies show safer streets could help to make the city safer for women.

 

The physical landscape can play a powerful role in shaping (not determining) cultural practices.  As we deliberately reshape our cities to make women safer, we are also reshaping our cultural values to be more commited to gender equality.

Israel Religion: I scooped this because the picture really stood out to me because the golden dome stands over the rock on Temple Mount. you also can see great images of Indonesia, Spain, Egypt, Syria, and Israel/Palestine. Not only are these sacred buildings but they are also big religious and tourist attractions.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, December 15, 2014 1:20 PM

Although all part of the same religion these buildings are influenced heavily by their location. I think this is important to note because it challenges our assumptions on Islam. When I think of a mosque a certain image pops into my head, these images shows how the same religion can still have local influences.

Dallas Raulerson's curator insight, April 7, 11:21 AM
This article talks about the reasons why Islamic religious followers build this Mosque and other religious place for Muhammad and other religious people. This relates to our class subject because we are talking about religion and sacred places and why things are built for people or things of there religion or what they believe in.
