TEACH AND LEARN GEOGRAPHY: CHALLENGES AND PERSPECTIVES
The challenge to understand the transformation of reality in which we live from the special point of view is not imposed only on the common citizen. To decipher this new context has become a great challenge for the science of geography and the teaching of Geography since it requires fundamentally thinking in new theories, in new methodological instruments and to closely consider that the science or teaching of Geography are constructions which are the fruit of our times. This study discusses some challenges which are imposed upon us in the teaching of Geography in basic education and points out questions which could signal for the construction of more viable proposals for the formation of citizens in the present day.
Key Words: Teaching of Geography; globalization, basic education
