Enhancing Geography Education in Washington State
The Washington State Geographic Alliance is currently in transition.
With support from National Geographic Society and in a new home at Eastern Washington University, Alliance leadership is engaged in a planning process to design an organization that will 1.) promote leadership in geo-literacy throughout the state; and 2.) produce models and resources for the broader community of Alliance educators. The organization will leverage connections between geo-literacy, STEM disciplines, and a rich array of private and public interests in contemporary geographical sciences. A specific strategy we are developing will target local, personally relevant community and environmental issues tied to geo-literacy and STEM education.
