Integrating Geography and History

 

“”This 18-stanza poem by Kit Salter, beautifully captures the importance of geographic thinking in any history/social studies curriculum.  This was shared by Dr. Vernon Domingo.  Slides of his keynote address titled, Integrating Geography and History are available here.”

It was my privilege to hear my good friend and fellow geo-evangelist, Dr. Vernon Domingo share ideas on the importance of integrating geographic analysis in historical inquiry.  He shared a fabulous poem by Kit Salter, one of the pioneers in the Network of Geographic Alliances.  I’ll only share the first stanza here:

    How can there be a separate scene,
    For history without place
    How can there be events in time,
    For which there is no space?
