Teaching Geography with Primary Sources and Picture Books - 29962
Why is it necessary to teach geography in the Social Studies classroom? How do you use geography to create critical thinkers in your classroom? Do your students lack knowledge of the world around them? This session will address the need for teaching geography and spatial skills in all the Social Studies content courses to increase student understanding and critical thinking skills. The focus will be on standards-based, student-centered strategies to develop geography skills as well as critical-thinking skills utilizing primary sources and picture books. There will be an opportunity to extend your learning by participating in a three-hour asynchronous extension activity. Please bring a laptop.
