Visualizing Physical Geography - 2012

picVisualizing Physical Geography - 2012
Dr. Tim Foresman, Author
Visualizing Physical Geography employs uniquely designed visual pedagogy to help students acquire the skills they need to become better learners. The 2nd edition, with lead author Dr. Tim Foresman, has refined and expanded the visuals using insights from research on student outcomes.

The Visualizing approach uses a variety of research-based visuals to engage students so they become active participants in the learning process. Visualizing Physical Geography immerses students in course material through visuals (both in print and rich multimedia resources) while organizing complex processes and related course information into easily digestible segments.

Visualizing Physical Geography is a comprehensive, modern book for today's physical geography course. With current examples, thorough coverage of geographers' tools and technology, and a visual design that is accessible without sacrificing content, it is a title that will appeal to a broad range of instructors.

The narrative and concepts are tightly linked to visual elements, including practical examples that highlight the relevance of the concepts. Maps are integrated throughout to help reveal patterns or trends. Divergent views and critical thinking are emphasized. Photographs and other visuals are also included to reinforce the concepts.

  • "From the Field" examines a specific place, its location, what the issues are, geographers' field research and what the authors found in their own observations.
  • "Applying geographic knowledge" sections at the end of each chapter, address the key concepts used within the chapter and force students to apply geographic concepts.
