Overview

The “Geography Attitude” as author Mike McGuire, The Map Man called it was explained in the Geography Literacy Report by The Gallup Poll in 1993, again by the U.S. Education Department in 1994, and in 2002 by The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and The National Geographic-Roper 2002 Global Geographic Literacy Survey… all stating how poorly American students did in testing for geography literacy. U.S. and World Geography is not taught as a “core” subject in our school systems here in America, but as a part of another subject, such as History or the English Language. So it is no wonder why American students and adults for that matter of fact are so poor in their understanding of the subject material of geography. This educational trend needs to be reversed because U.S. geography is so vital to our daily lives, global events and our culture. By using the common and popular method of Trivia Questions (Note the popular TV shows: Jeopardy, Who wants to be a Millionaire and The Weakest Link among others) this format was chosen to develop interest, fun in learning and respect for the educational value of geography. Let’s first start by learning about the geography in our Homeland, The United States of America and then move on to World Geography later.
