Geography in Normal and Secondary Schools: Regional Geography in Secondary Schools


by Richard Elwood Dodge 1914

The type of geography of most value for the usual secondary school varies with the locality, with the character of the school and in accord with the future life needs of the pupils. It is doubtful if a course in commercial geography devoted primarily to the distribution of industries and products and to their exchange is adapted to the needs of many schools. Such courses axe likely to be far too informational in type and not to give the outlook on the world relations and economic opportunities that are a better basis for future growth. A study of economic and commercial conditions over the world and of our own country from a regional standpoint has more value both from the standpoint of immediate and ultimate use. But even this fails in part unless the economic and social relationships of the various parts of our country are brought out and the pupil sees, not each area separately, but in its setting as related to the larger country of which it is a contributing and dependent part.
