Analyzing Our World Using GIS Media Kit: Our World GIS Education, Level 3
Analyzing Our World Using GIS, level 3 of the Our World GIS Education series, is geared to high school students and others who want to extend their basic GIS skills. The ten lessons combine step-by-step instruction with the critical thinking and open-minded exploration inherent in GIS. Building on students’ fluency with tabular and raster GIS data, the curriculum enhances the topics covered in level 2 of the series (Mapping Our World Using GIS) and includes political and economic geography, geology, climate, population patterns, and current issues. The lessons are aligned to the National Geography Standards for grades 9-12, and a chart included in this media package aligns the modules to the National Science Education, Mathematics, and Technology curriculum standards.
The Analyzing Our World Using GIS media kit includes a CD and a DVD. The CD contains files with student worksheets, GIS data for completing the lessons, and teacher resources. The DVD contains a one-year trial version of ArcEditor 9.3.1 software for computers using Microsoft Windows operating systems.
