Registration - Geo-Inquiries Training for Middle School Teachers

Registration - Geo-Inquiries Training for Middle School Teachers

The New York Geographic Alliance invites middle school teachers to join us at Monroe Community College in Rochester, NY for a two hour Geo-Inquiries Workshop. It will be held on Wed. November 28th from 4:00 to 6:30 PM. A light pizza dinner will be included. 

This training is part of National Geographic's National Initiative for 2018. Our goal is to train at least 10 pairs of teachers this fall or early winter. After learning from experts in GIS and cartography, you should be able to work with your students (Grades 6-8) on projects where they follow the Geo-Inquiries method to solve a problem relevant to their lives and to their community. 

All middle school teachers are eligible to register, but you must have a partner join you. The best combination is a science teacher with a social studies teacher, but other options will be considered. We will be expecting all teachers who request a certificate of attendance to commit to informing us on the projects their students performed in 2019. If requested, participating teachers can receive a gas card to cover their travel expenses. 

If you want additional information call the NYGA Office at (585)-292-2398 or email Tim McDonnell (NYGA Coordinator) 


Please provide a short (1-2 sentences) explanation as to why you are interested in attending.
