New To This Edition
Enhanced Pedagogy: Threshold Concepts are integrated into each chapter, enabling students to develop their ability to think geographically and apply geographic concepts as they learn about people and places. Each chapter includes narrative summaries, self-tests, and Thinking Geographically questions written by the authors.
Updated Content: Fouberg and Murphy are active scholars, engaged teachers, and extensive travelers who integrate current research in geography, up to date case studies, and their own fieldwork experiences throughout the 12th edition. New citations from major geography journals and new author field notes from recent travels model what geographers do and how they do it.
More accessible: The authors reorganized, rewrote, and redesigned all chapters to be more concise and more accessible to students, while not losing any of the solid, foundational content.
More visual: The 12th edition includes 25% more maps and photos and integrates Threshold Concept Videos, short case study videos, and teaching videos shot by the author team. The authors’ compelling caption for each photo and map walks students through the pattern on the map or tells the story behind the photo.
Thinking Geographically and Doing Geography: Students can do geography by working in ArcGIS Online with auto-graded question sets written by geographers, reading cultural landscapes in author field notes and guest field notes, analyzing short documentary-type videos with auto-graded question sets, and learning concepts through one-minute Threshold Concept Videos.
Improved and Expanded Resources: Instructors can integrate individual slides, use full presentations of geographer-created Lecture Power Points, and have an Image Gallery for use in creating their own slides or other materials. Integrated auto-graded assignments on videos and ArcGIS Online maps are available in each chapter, and an improved test bank, written by a geographer, gives instructors a resource for creating quizzes and exams.
