Geography for Grades 6-12

Geography for Grades 6-12:

This session will focus on tools and strategies to help students (and teachers!) develop geography content knowledge and academic literacy while also supporting inquiry and informed action.  Tools presented will include a discussion guide that supports critical reading and reinforces key disciplinary concepts, frameworks for developing both compelling and supporting questions using a geographic lens, online mapping exercises that trigger spatial thinking, geo-histograms to bring spatial and historical perspectives together, and citizen science programs that encourage exploration and observation of local and remote environments.
