EDUC 220 - Economic Geography


Credits: Three (3)
This course is intended for pre-service elementary school teachers. Students will be presented with the basic concepts of both economics and geography, as recommended by the National Council on Economic Education and The National Geography Standards Project, and will become familiar with the special relationship between these two disciplines. Students will increase their economic/geographic knowledge/skills, adding breadth and depth to their personal mental maps. They will practice inquiry-learning and problem solving strategies using a variety of graphic representations, resources, and technologies so that they will be able to plan/teach effective, engaging economic-geography lessons.
