 Product Description

 

This textbook discusses some past, present, and future aspects of the Pacific Northwest and its inhabitants. The book is organized into three units: the physical environment without man, the five migrational flows of humans, and the contemporary economic and cultural activities of the residents. The three units are color-coded as follows: geographic concepts (Chapters 1-5) are green; historic concepts (Chapters 6-13) are brown; and socio-economic concepts (Chapters 14-21) are blue. The scope of the book is, by design, regional and therfore quite broad. Discussion of events, people, and concepts is limited to the subject's overall impact upon the region as a whole. It was not designed to be a scholarly historical treatise nor a collection of local or personal histories. The book is a regional text designed to acquaint the Pacific Northwest secondary student with his environment and cultural heritage. 

 

Student Activities

Student activities conclude each chapter except Chapter 21. The student activities have five basic parts: A. Developing Vocabulary Skills - important basic and enrichment terms; B. Developing Map Skills - use and interpretation of maps; C. Understanding Concepts - student questions stressing the central ideas within the chapter; D. Enrichment Activities - more difficult questions and tasks; and E. For Further Reading - a brief bibliography of pertinent readings. The activities are designed to increase the student's depth of understanding, expand the learning experience, and challenge the capable student to see the Pacific Northwest's relationship with the rest of the nation and the world.

 

Supplementals

The book contains 61 maps and 105 supplementals, including 3 diagrams, 4 climatographs, 8 artist depictions, 11 timelines, 20 vignettes, and 51 charts. The vignettes either add color to some human aspect or discuss a topic in greater depth. The history chapters (1, 6-13) begin with a complete chronological sequence of major events noted in the timeline. Statistical and informational charts provide instant reference for the reader without having to seek the information elsewhere. An index to the supplementals is on pages vi, vii, and viii. In all cases the most recent data available were used.

 

Maps

With few exceptions, the 61 maps were drawn especially for this textbook by the author. The 16 full color maps (A-1 to A-16 in the atlas section) should be a positive learning aid. The 45 other maps are appropriately dispersed throughout the text. The students will appreciate the proximity of the maps to the narrative discussion of the topic. Each end-of-chapter activity includes a series of map interpretations. The maps will help the students' spatial understanding.
