Where in the World???

My students need a class set of 30 copies of Collins Student World Atlas in order to improve their understanding of the world's countries, rivers, mountains, etc.

My Students

Geography is everything - The world is fast becoming a global village yet some pupils can't find themselves on a map! Geography teaches them to be part of something bigger. (Victoria Humphries, geographer)

My students are mostly bright and inquisitive ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders, many of whom have somehow made it to high school without knowing where anything is in the world!

Some think Canada is a state, some don't know the ocean next to our state (Virginia) is the Atlantic! This is not all students but many are deficient in their knowledge of physical geography and I hope to remedy this situation.

My Project

I am requesting a classroom set of World Atlases to get students engaged in finding where places are in the world. A more informed person who knows where things are located is a better citizen. I would like to see my students become world citizens and become more interested in the people and places around the world. Geography education goes far beyond just knowing where countries, rivers, and mountains are located, but these are building blocks to a greater understanding of a larger world.

If you have seen various game shows and talk shows where they ask average Americans geography questions, you know the situation is not what it could be!

I hope to improve my students' knowledge of "where in the world" places are located, to create a generation of World Citizens who are aware of and care about where they live, and other places and people from around the world. World Atlases will certainly help toward that goal.
