    I have had mixed emotions about this program. As an instructor I thought
    it was great, I personally saw many different ways of presenting material.
    And I even considered using it as a short course for teacher
    recertification. Then I began to see the problems. The teachers would have
    to have had some Geography so that they would't spend time looking places
    up. They should also understand something about plantary movements,
    mapping, and GIS.
    If your teachers have had some Geography, then I would carefully choose what
    programs worked best for me and use one or two of those for an all-day
    Good Luck,

    Subject: [Channel-talkgeography] The Teaching Geography Workshop


    I teach 9th grade World Geography and have been going through the workshop.
    I not only found lesson plans and resources that help with my thematic units
    but I have offered to lead this workshop in the fall for new geography
    teachers at my school. I feel that this would better equip a new teacher to
    our school to better teach geography in a meaningful way. I would like to
    get some feedback from some of you who have led this workshop as I prepare
    to write a proposal for my assistant principal in charge of curriculum so
    that I know what to expect.
