Excerpt from The Teaching of Geography in Elementary Schools
This little book is an attempt to apply the newer conceptions of Geography to teaching in elementary schools. It in no way aims at being original in its treatment of the subject itself: for these we are indebted to the body of geographers who have during the last few years revolutionized the conception of the subject, in particular to Mr. H. J. Mackinder and Dr. A. J. Herbertson, to whose works frequent reference is made in the following pages. We felt, however, that in regard to the teaching of Geography in elementary schools, the central idea for which they are struggling - that Geography is, above all things, the examination of the effect of natural agencies on human affairs - is not yet sufficiently recognized and acted upon, and our aim is to throw out some suggestions as to changes in the teaching which we believe would help the better realization of this idea. In the case of branches of the subject which have only recently come into prominence, we have given some outline of the subject-matter to serve as an introduction of them to readers to whom they may be unfamiliar, and have added information as to sources from which information may be obtained.
In the Index the pages where subjects are treated most fully have been printed in black type.
