Welcome to Our Geographic Literacy Virtual Workshops

In order to reach more educators across our state, the Arizona Geographic Alliance is creating a variety of virtual workshops to enhance the geographic literacy of educators and students. By clicking a link below, you will be taken to a home page for that workshop where you can view the videos, download materials, and/or gain more resources about this topic. This home page will also tell you the grade level suggested for this topic/activity and may include ideas for improving vocabulary acquisition of all students including diverse learners.

We are open to suggestions on future additions to the virtual workshop categories. Please submit your suggestion with an explanation of why this workshop is needed and what you would like to see included in the virtual workshop so the Alliance can make a decision on feasibility. Send suggestions to: azga@asu.edu
