Updated throughout in response to teacher feedback, the second edition features an important new chapter on spatial cognition. Nearly 100 engaging activities are provided in reproducible transparency masters. Grounded in national and state standards, this is an ideal preservice text or professional development resource.

"Gersmehl’s book intertwines geographic content, classroom practice, and theory. Engaging narratives and rich examples bring geographic content and spatial-thinking skills to life. The author makes classroom practices accessible through instructional suggestions that will resonate with both new and experienced teachers. Theory is creatively used to focus content and practice on the learner. This book is an essential resource for present and future teachers of geography and social studies." - Joseph P. Stoltman, Western Michigan University
"Teaching Geography offers a vast range of approaches to illustrate spatial concepts-whether topical or regional, local or global-allowing for flexibility to suit a particular teaching style, classroom setting, or discipline. The second edition includes findings from recent brain research indicating that students who have acquired spatial skills do better in other subjects as well. Gersmehl counters the question: 'Why teach geography?' with the more important question, 'Why not teach geography?' This book should be required reading for teachers at all grade levels, from preservice to beginner to veteran, and will be a valuable resource for administrators and others making decisions about curriculum." - Gail L. Hobbs, Pierce College, Woodland Hills, California; past president, National Council for Geographic Education
"A giant in geographic education, Gersmehl writes in elegant prose. This book is an eminently useful resource for new teachers of geography, university teachers, and even for old pros in the classroom." - Kathy Sundstedt, social studies teacher, grades 7-12, New Hartford-Dike Junior High, New Hartford, IowaAbout the Author:
