The mission of the Arizona Geographic Alliance is to promote geographic education and be the advocates for geographic literacy throughout the state of Arizona. Since 2003, the Alliance has conducted over 343 workshops that have impacted over 16,000 teachers who are teaching more than 610,000 students. These workshops have been in schools and school districts as well as in state and national level settings.

Each year the Alliance conducts an annual geography conference (GeoConference), and hosts various daylong workshops that focus on a region of the world or on a teaching strategy such as GeoLiteracy (integration of geography and reading and writing skills), GeoSTEMSS (integration of geography and STEM skills), GeoHistory (history and civics taught with a geographic perspective), and GeoLiteracy for English Language Learners (ELLs). We impact hundreds of preservice teachers through education methods classes, and our membership totals over 4,300 educators.

Visit our website (http://geoalliance.asu.edu) to get hundreds of classroom maps (regional, national, state, as well as historical maps and maps for young learners). Our website also has hundreds of geography lessons updated with the Common Core Standards for mathematics and English language arts, many with ELL adaptations.
