Geographic Lens on the World:
The Geography of Canada
June 17th-August 16th, 2013
First assignments due July 1st!
Using the Geography for Life 2nd edition as a guideline for teaching geography thinking skills, and using the study of Canada’s geography as the content, this online course will enable participants to acquire a mental map of Canada, and to gain practice in asking and answering geographic questions.
Through an engaging exploration of video presentations, readings, maps and websites, participants will acquire information and ideas to write inspired activities building towards the final project of creating two lessons based on teaching the skills of a geographer. Participants will collaboratively create an annotated list of websites and will have access to all the lessons created.
Open to any teacher, no prerequisites.
