Exploring the World through Geo-Inquiry and Writing

November 10, 2020

Join Writing Project colleagues and educators associated with the National Geographic Educator Network to learn about the Geo-Inquiry process developed to support students in developing the skills, knowledge, and tools of a geographer and provide pathways for investigating, understanding, and taking action through a geographic lens. We will hear from teachers who have explored geo-inquiry with their students, feature resources available to support this process in classrooms, online, as well as outside, and explore the potential for connecting across disciplines through writing and geography.
