2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
This report describes the attempts of five university geography departments -- at Clark University and the Universities of Illinois, Iowa, Colorado, and California at Berkeley -- to explore ways for incorporating teaching preparation into the programs of their docutoral students. The Objective of the project was to propagate among geographers the concept of teaching as responsibility for learning and to take the lead in putting that concept into action. Each department developed its own unique program based on the overall objective. The report is divided into three parts. Part one provides an introduction to the background and purpose of the project. Part two provides recommendations on geographic education as the master framework for teaching innovation, student participation, intended learner outcomes, management models, exploration models, and sharing and delegating authority to be used by future directors of local training programs. Part three provides recommendations for structuring and making a workable national system. Appendices include the individual reports upon which the recommendations are based. (Author/DE)

The Four Traditions of Geography, Professional Paper No. 25 by William David Pattison( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Four geography concepts illustrate the varied nature of the science and provide a pluralistic basis for uniting professional and pedagogical geography and for promoting communication with laymen. The spatial tradition, based on interest in geometry and movement, separates aspects of distance, form, direction, and position from events themselves. Ancient Greek sailing records first showed this perspective; school teachers and research geographers of central-place theory show it today. The second tradition, area studies, focuses on the nature and character of places, emphasizing literature and history. The academic community recognizes this second tradition, although technical vocabulary isolates professionals from lay teachers. The third tradition, the man-land interrelationship, initially had an environmental perspective and then changed to a cultural one. Today, its acceptance is seen in studies of resource use and conservation. Earth science, the fourth tradition, studies concrete aspects of the physical world. Although geology-based college courses overemphasize physical geography and some social studies curricula reject it, earth science does provide a unified view of the earth as man's habitat. (Av)
