New Resource for Teachers - All Over the Map: 10 Ways to Teach About Geography

10 Dec 2012 11:08 AM | Dr. Margaret Hill (Administrator)
Geography frequently takes a back seat to history in the social studies classroom, but teaching geographic literacy is essential if students are going to understanding the challenges and opportunities of our complex world. The New York Times Learning Network offers this terrific set of ideas to integrate geography into every social studies classroom including history, economics, and civics http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/04/all-over-the-map-10-ways-to-teach-about-geography/ The list is a grab-bag of ideas - from designing maps to analyzing border conflicts - and teachers can use the activities in any order, or as a road map for tracking ongoing coverage of geography-related issues.
