The Geographic Society of Chicago and Illinois Geographic Alliance invite you to participate in Exploring the Geo-Inquiry Process, a free two-day workshop intended to familiarize Middle School Educators with National Geographic’s Geo-Inquiry Process. This seminar is specifically for media/computer and science/social studies educators.
Participants will acquire a basic understanding of the Geo-Inquiry Process, which stresses that today’s students need to understand how the complex and dynamic human and natural systems interact in order to make smart decisions. The Geo-Inquiry Process relies on using a geographic perspective, offering a unique lens to analyze space, place, and the interconnections between both the human and natural world. Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process, students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities. The workshop will include a field component in the outdoors.
Educators who complete one the two-day workshops will receive a $150 stipend, plus PD hours!
