Political method of teaching of geography:
It is also known as patriotic or single country method of teaching of geography. In this method the teaching of geography of any one particular country is undertaken.
All the details of its lands, situations, natural conditions, climate, agricultural products, vegetation etc. are discussed.
The description of all these things is based on geographical factors of that particular country. When the description of one country is completed we take up the description of another country. Thus the geography of the whole world is taught in parts and countries.
Some educationists doubt the utility of this method. In their view the knowledge about one country given in isolation has little or no bearing on teaching of geography of the world.
Moreover in this method political condition of a particular country are not stressed. This method is not very psychological and scientific.
