Industry and Geo-Education!
The Utah Geographic Alliance is currently in transition.
The Utah Geographic Alliance began in 1988. Dr. Cliff Craig from USU was the visionary and advocate for the Alliance. Under his leadership many teachers became TC's (teacher consultants-trainers of teachers), Utah participated in countless professional development opportunities, resources were readily available and shared, and geography content became part of the Utah State Core Curriculum.
The Alliance long-term goals for geographic literacy in Utah are to bring about an acceptance and expectation for geography education and content. Teaching geography is not only fundamental, but essential!
