The Texas Alliance for Geographic Education developed a free on-line learning unit to assist teachers in providing a rigorous level of instruction on geographic concepts to high school students. Although this unit is focused regionally on Southeast Asia, content is provided within six geographic modules - physical geography, culture and religion, economic geography, environmental degradation, climate change and impact, and globalization. Each module is supported with background information, videos, and instructional materials.
We are excited to announce that a new on-line learning unit, Local to Global: Geographic Connections is now available. The unit consists of five modules that provide tools and techniques to teach geographic themes and content. While the resources are written for grades 4 through 8, there is information for any educator.
The units are hosted by the Texas State University learning management system, TRACS. A requirement of the system is that each user have a secure personal account.
Please submit an account request here to let us know that you would like to participate in the unit and we will create your user record within 72 hours of receiving your request. Only one account is needed to gain access to all TAGE online learning units.
Once your record is created, you will receive an e-mail instructing you how to create your account password. Once your password is created, you may access the unit at:
