WHAT: NCSS PreConference Clinic
TITLE: Korea’s Place in Teaching Human Geography
WHEN: Saturday November 28, 2020 // 9:30am – 2:30pm EDT
WHERE: Online Zoom platform
Join us for this Pre-Conference Clinic which will focus on teaching geography in general and AP Human Geography in particular. In this virtual, interactive session, participants will work with and use teaching materials that can be implemented immediately in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to work with free, open source materials in breakout rooms. These sessions will include targeted lessons and instructional strategies for teaching population, cultural landscapes, and economic development. A scholar will offer helpful perspective on Korea and expert teachers will share their experience.
Participants will work directly with the authors of these instructional materials and be able to ask questions and immediately use, adapt, and implement the materials which also include assessment materials aligned to the new AP Human Geography exam format. Geography teachers will find the strategies and focus on skill development particularly helpful as they are all designed to be student-centered activities where students actively learn and make meaning by wrestling with graphs, data, photographs, and other sources.
A non-refundable deposit of $20 is due at the time of registration. Participants must also be registered for the 2020 online NCSS Conference.
