Workshop three

  1. 1. Workshop Three Three Strands of Meaning
  2. 2. Three Strands of Meaning <ul><li>Facts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Visual images, sounds, smells, other sensory impressions, measurements of all kinds. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Concepts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Theories to explain why particular features occur in specific places. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Values/Opinions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How particular features, ideas, and behaviors fit in a specific place. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Three Strands of Meaning <ul><li>Geography isn’t well understood without all three strands of meaning. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Like trying to learn a language by memorizing all of the words that start with the letter a, then all of the words that start with the letter b. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. World Map
  5. 6. World Cities Map
  6. 7. World Climate Map
  7. 8. Simplified Climate Model A Tropical Rainy B Dry B Dry C Mild Humid C Mild Humid D Snowy Forests D Snowy Forests E Polar E Polar Equator
  8. 9. Using the Three Strands <ul><li>We can better understand phenomena using all three strands of meaning. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Houses for example… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The term for a house means different things to different people around the world. </li></ul></ul></ul>House on stilts in the Amazon Adobe house, New Mexico A Frame house, Alps
  9. 10. Workshop Three Assignment <ul><li>Use the physical South America map. </li></ul><ul><li>Plot five cities, your choice, one in each of the climate zones of South America. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Make a list of those cities. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Research your cities: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What climate zone are they in? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What type of trees grow there? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What type of shoes do people where there? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Include in your list of cities the climate, trees, and shoes. </li></ul><ul><li>Use pictures or drawings of each tree and shoe. </li></ul><ul><li>This assignment will require the use of a computer or books in the library. </li></ul>
  10. 13. Resources <ul><li>Included in this PowerPoint are slides from the physical geography chapter on biomes which you may find helpful for your trees. </li></ul>
  11. 14. Forest Biomes <ul><ul><li>1. Low-Latitude Rainforest : Very diverse, containing large numbers of plant and animal species. Broadleaf evergreen trees dominate the vegetation cover. The rainforest climate is wet year round or has a short dry season. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Monsoon Forest : An open cover of deciduous trees that shed their leaves during the pronounced dry season. It is found in regions of wet-dry tropical climate and ranges from South America to Africa and southern Asia. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. Subtropical Evergreen Forest : Includes both broadleaf and needleleaf evergreen trees and is found in moist subtropical climate regions of southeastern Asia. Most of this formation class has been lost to cultivation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4. Midlatitude Deciduous Forest : Dominated by tall, broadleaf trees that provides a continuous and dense canopy during the summer but shed their leaves completely in the winter. These represent native forests of eastern North America and Western Europe. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>5. Needle Leaf Forest : Refers to a forest composed largely of straight-trunked, cone shaped trees with relatively short branches and small, narrow, needlelike leaves. These trees are conifers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>6. Sclerophyll Forest : Dominated by low trees with thick, leathery leaves that are well-adapted to the long summer drought of the Mediterranean climate. </li></ul></ul>
