OAGEE strongly supports Geography and Environmental Education teachers as we strive to provide materials useful to secondary and elementary school teachers of Geography and its cognate disciplines. Our annual Spring Conferences promote field studies with an emphasis on geo-technology, geo-literacy, geo-numeracy, environmental education, differentiated instruction, and inquiry-based learning. Teacher workshop sessions and field studies, sponsored by OAGEE, are a great opportunity for teachers to learn and implement focused strategies for student engagement, and consequently advance students’ literacy, numeracy and critical thinking skills.

We hope to see you at the Spring Conference!
