The Tennessee Geographic Alliance is providing geography instruction, lesson plans, content, and activities to assist teachers at all levels in incorporating geography into their Social Studies courses. Instructors are all in-service classroom teachers from across the state.
The workshop will consist of individual break-out sessions that focus on three primary areas: The new grades 3-5 Social Studies Standards with a concentration on Tennessee history and geography content; AP Human Geography methods and resources; and effective ways to incorporate geospatial technologies into your classroom for grades 3-12. All content and resources will be aligned with the newest Tennessee state Social Studies standards or with the AP College Board requirements.
