Please read through Chapters 1 (Human Geography: A Cultural Approach) and 2 (Many Worlds: Geographies of Cultural Difference) in your textbook and then choose* (and view) any three of the short PBS Frontline World films from their website (http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/) with the following questions in mind: Why might knowing about cultural geography and/or utilizing a geographical perspective be significant in understanding today’s world? I would then like you to discuss those questions and if you believe the subject is neglected in the U.S. educational system and if this a problem for the country or no big deal and why? Many U.S. states, including Florida, have considered deemphasizing the teaching of the subject in recent years.
*Your choice of three PBS Frontline World films to view is left entirely at your discretion. However, you are expected to clearly demonstrate that you viewed these three films in your DB contributions. If you have any difficulties accessing the PBS Frontline World site you can substitute any of the three films below from the W.H. Freeman site.
The W.H. Freeman films below are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please use the PBS Frontline World link above instead
