By the way, Guns, germs and Steel (the video) is a good way to start with them. There is a great set of lesson plans on PBS that help point out the importance of geography in the development of a culture. Episode one is the most relevant. A book called Hands On Geography has also been very helpful.

I am seeking participants in the "Teaching Geography" workshop series with
which to converse. I am taking the workshop solo. I teach Contemporary
History to 11th Graders at a NW Ohio, rural high school... my course
combines cultural studies with geography and media awareness in a
cooperative learning environment. I would love to share your thoughts on
problems in teaching geography to today's "E-spaced" teens, ideas for
activities and lesson plans, resources, etc.

Henry
