Summary

Mapping Our World: GIS Lessons for Educators is the first complete resource for any teacher seeking to bring geographic information system (GIS) technology into the middle- or high-school classroom. In addition to nineteen complete GIS lesson plans, Mapping Our World: GIS Lessons for Educators includes a one-year license of ArcView 3.x, geographic data for all of the lessons, a Teacher Resource CD, and a companion Web site. This comprehensive educational resource gives novice GIS educators all the tools they need to begin teaching with GIS. Teachers with more GIS experience will find the lessons and data ideal points of departure for more complex and extended inquiries.

  • The seven modules of the book are built around different geographic themes. Students investigate each theme on three different levels, with a different lesson for each level.
  • The global perspective lesson targets first-time GIS students and gives them the opportunity to explore real data from around the world, create maps, and ask essential questions.
  • The regional case study lesson also targets first-time GIS students, but focuses on a particular area of the world, allowing students to access regional information and data, and to analyze regional issues.


The advanced investigation lesson targets experienced ArcView users, requiring significant independent work, self-motivation, and sophisticated problem-solving skills.
Each GIS Investigation has been developed according to National Geography Standards. Detailed step-by-step instructions for the student, well-placed screen captures, and questions that encourage the acquisition of broad-based problem-solving skills accompany every lesson.
