Mapping Our World & Analyzing Our World both contain comprehensive lessons on population that can help you explore the 7 billion phenomenon in your classroom.
Providing a complete resource for any teacher seeking a way to bring GIS technology into the middle- or high-school classroom, this educational package is a comprehensive collection of world geography lessons, lesson plans, exercises, and assessment tools. Exploring seven geographic themes, students are able to investigate each theme using real data to create maps with GIS software. This book provides teachers with everything they need to begin teaching a GIS course or incorporating GIS into a standard geography course.
The third volume in the Our World GIS Education series (Analyzing Our World) promotes inquiry-based learning in world geography and other disciplines through the use of geographic information systems. Readers will be able to conduct far-ranging geographic exploration with this book and supplemental materials including a resource CD and a 180-day trial DVD of ArcView 9.2 software.
