The ProGuide uses a unit-by-unit approach, and it is separated into three main components: the Overview, the Unit ProGuides, and the Core Concepts Handbook.
myWorld Geography includes integrated activities both in print and online. Refer to the Experience: Hands-on Activity Kit tutorial on this Web site.
myWorld Geography incorporates the use of KMZ files on myworldgeography.com. First, download the KMZ files from myworldgeography.com. Then, use tools like Google Maps, NASA World Wind, or Bing Maps to import the KMZ files from myWorld Geography into these programs.
You can teach each lesson for each Core Concept part as an introductory unit in your course or you can use it throughout the year to support or extend instruction. Each lesson gives specific objectives, expectations, or outcomes. The myWorld Activity Support reinforces the lesson's Core Concepts.
