BJU Cultural Geography

Bob Jones incorporates geography study and map work into all of their history curriculum, but, like other publishers, takes the ninth grade year to specifically focus on understanding geography. Their text, now in its third edition, is a large book, professionally layed-out and filled with plenty of full-color illustrations, charts, and maps. It covers both main branches of geography, dealing with physical geography and the cultures of the world—in contrast with programs like Runkle and Mapping the World by Heart, which focus only on the physical. Because the text comes from a Christian worldview, it assumes that God created the world, and it emphasizes the spiritual needs of the peoples of the world, taking some time to discuss other major world religions, from a Protestant perspective.

The first two units of Geography for Christian Schools contain a five chapter general introduction to the subject, in which the text describes the world as God made it (physical geography), and discusses the implications of man subduing the world with industry and society (human geography). This section includes general terms and issues to be aware of. The rest of the book is divided into eight units of world regions. Like other Bob Jones textbooks, each chapter contains section review questions, as well as questions at the end of each chapter. The questions in the section reviews are comprehension based, while the chapter reviews include a wider variety of work, including defining terms, locating geographical features on a map or globe, memory questions, thought questions, and cumulative review.

As you can see, there are a number of books included in this set. We don't think you need to use them all—in fact, we would suggest you do not. (This is a LOT of work for one subject!) We usually suggest one of two main approaches. Either:

  • Purchase the textbook, teacher edition, tests and test key. Don't worry about the additional work in the Student Activity Book. If you REALLY want more map work, purchase the Map Exercises Packet and its answer key.

    OR
  • Purchase the textbook, student activities book and activities answer key. Don't worry about the questions in the book as much; focus instead on the activities and map work. (With this option, you might be able to do without the teacher edition.)

In either case, see the individual items for more detailed information.
