Next message: Glenda E. Wheatley: "[Channel-talkgeography] Ideas from Workshop 1"
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

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.
