Advocating inquiry-based geography instruction, this book poses dozens of compelling inquiries (e.g., "How has technology affected our view of location?" and "When is movement desirable, necessary, or problematic?") and sketches out examples of possible classroom applications.

The core of the book applies inquiry to the five themes of geography. One additional chapter explores "the slippery world of maps" and their uses, and another proposes a role-play simulation in which student groups at six different levels of historical development compete or coexist on an imaginary continent with varied environments.
