practical application of ideas. Both the style and choice of material are
designed to suit learners in their early teens.
The geography books of the book series entitled Science for Teenagers
have the same units as other members of the series. The book applies
improved and elaborate didactic methods so that students may fit their
knowledge in an already existing frame.
The compulsory material is well separated from the other texts, and at
the same time the books offer material to those students who wish to
process the material more thoroughly and more comprehensively. The tables
and charts make complex analysis of interrelationships possible and this
way teachers get ample material for the versatile processing of the
material. The rich colourful pictures, reading texts and historical
overviews are just light readings and make the study book an exciting one.
The test questions at the end of each lesson and chapter make studying
more easy as well as the appendix with statistical data and the lexicon
explaining unknown concepts and foreign words.
The workbook which belongs to the geography study book of 7th and 8th
grade helps deepen the knowledge acquired from the study book. They also
make it possible both for teachers and students to see what the level of
the acquired knowledge is.
