The Integrated Teaching of Chinese Regional Geography in the Secondary School Author: Kuo-chuan Chen, Han-Ling Yao


This paper conducted here, is an attempt to assess the effect of the "integrated teaching model", which was applied to the teaching of Chinese regional geography in the secondary school. The "integrated teaching model" is a teaching method which tried to integrate different instructional procedures such as instructional objectives, instructional activitives and instructional evaluations, as well as different learning domains such as cognitive, psychomotor and affective objectives at the same time. The fundamentals of this teaching model are: the instructional objectives are designed based upon the objectives for geographic curriculum and the teaching materials of geography; the instructional activitives, which are student-centered, comprise the cognitive and affective domains; and the instructional evaluations are designed based upon the instructional objectives and the instructional activitives. The results of assessment indicate that the integrated teaching model will not only help students to increase their interest in and willingness of learning geography,but also help them to attain instructional objectives including those in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domains. On the other hand, it is also found out when this model of the teaching of regional geography is applied, the whole teaching processes have alway been interupted by occasional extracurricular activitives inside or outside the school.
