Overview

Have you ever wanted to think of a way for your students to remember world capitals or the rivers in a certain region? Ebbesmeyer's book, Teaching Global Literacy Using Mnemonics, will help you do that and teach the national geography standards as well The book is divided into sections by continents. Each section has a short introduction, suggested annotated reading lists of picture and chapter books to motivate student interest in that geographic area and a mnemonic sentence, rhyme, or story that will help students remember the makeup of the country or continent discussed. The mnemonics differ from the usual, in that they are directly connected to the region, people, or culture being studied. There is a simple map of the region and activities tied to the national standards for geography. Activities focus on ideas to integrate global studies with all other areas of the curriculum and on ways to motivate teachers and students to extend the lessons and create their own ideas.
