This article stems from the many inquiries PCGE has received from numerous World Cultures teachers with little geography preparation. It pertains to those who seek workable materials applicable to teaching/leaning situations where geography fills the gap in a World Cultures course of study. Our primary goal is to fulfill this objective with pertinent geographical instruments. These will give instructors an awareness of some key ingredients towards fostering geography's function within the framework of World Cultures: 1) Geography's Contribution to the Teaching of World Cultures, 2) A Geography Teacher Looks at the Problem of Space Perceptions, 3) Some Reflections by a Geographer on the Teaching of World Cultures , 4) The Application of a Geographic Inventory: A Model for the Teaching of World Cultures, 5) Mental Gymnastics: Geographic Learning Techniques, and 6) Resource Bibliography.

The Pennsylvania Geographical Society exists to promote effective geographic teaching, research, and literacy.
