oa East African Geographical Review - Pictures, pupils and geography

An examination of some aspects of the provision and use of pictures in the teaching of geography in a developing country. The teaching of geography should begin with a study of the local environment and proceed from the known to the unknown. From the scene we can visit to the scene we can only visualise. The local study can be completed without the use of pictures, though this is, in my view, quite wrong and will be discussed later, but the geographical study of places quite remote, physically and economically, from the environment of our school, is very dependent on our pupils ability to visualise the unfamiliar scene.
