To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
— The first of these canons declared that all geographical facts and principles which cannot be taught by direct observation ASIA AND THE TEACHING OF CLIMATE 171 should be taught as part of a course based on Descriptive Bt Geography. It is not meant that no special lessons on topics of Climatic or Economic Geography should be given, but that, in order to preserve the sense of reality, they should be worked into a course of which the framework is descriptive rather than be made the subject-matte...r of a special term's work in Climatic or any other special form of Geography. * By this means, not only is a concrete character given to matters which would otherwise be of an abstract nature, and quite without interest to children, but time is given for each, principle to be assimilated while Regional Geography is being done before the next principle is attacked. This latter point may be exemplified by the gradual way in which the Seasons have been introduced in con- nection with the various countries.
