Geography: Teaching with the Stars

The largest, current project of GCGE is Geography: Teaching with the Stars, a Web-based professional development series. Each program offers an in-class demonstration by an exemplary teacher, commentary on teaching strategies by a mentor teacher, and a content enhancement/enrichment segment, all on current issues with strong geographic dimensions. These programs are being funded by a consortium, including the United States Department of Education, several foundations including the NGS Education Foundation, the Sid W. Richardson Foundation, and the Dodge Jones Foundation. Several State Alliances for Geographic Education have joined the center in the development and use of these programs. The production work is being carried out by the Agency for Instructional Technology in Bloomington, Indiana.
