Classroom uses of the Geography text book Methods by the Students

Auther : Hassan Bin Ali Mukhtar

For students, a geography textbook is an important source of information and concepts on geography. It helps them in widening their knowledge and enhancing their culture. Therefore, in order to gain knowledge and understanding, it needs to be used effectively.

The purpose of this study is to identify some of the classroom uses of the geography textbook methods by the students under the supervision of their teachers in the third grade of the Intermediate Level in some schools in Makkah and Jiddah. The study is based on a questionaire that consists of 35 items and covers three areas: a.) regular methods, b.) organizational methods, c.) methods of using illustrated teaching aids included in the textbooks. The sample is purposively selected from five schools for boys in the two cities, (n:831 students).

After analysis, the results are as follows:

1) Almost all of the regular methods that are employed in geography textbooks are used in the classroom by students. However, students need to develop their skills in the use of such methods.

2) Most of the organizational methods in geography textbooks are used in the classroom by students. Still, students need to develop their skills in the use of such methods, especially in the ones that require more intellectual effort.

3) Some of the methods of using illustrated teaching aids included in the textbooks are used in the classroom by students. Though more training in the use of such methods is lacking.

4) Differences between students of the two cities of Makkah and Jiddah were noticed in the use of geography textbooks. Students at Jiddah schools used the geography textbook methods more than students at Makkah schools.

The researcher recommended that teachers and students be trained in developing their skills in the use of the methods geography textbooks. He has also recommended that more studies are needed for more conclusive results.
