Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone out there has developed a high school GIS course. I'm wanting to propose an elective course focusing on GIS at my high school and I could use some guidance if there's anyone out there who has created something - formally or informally.

Thanks very much.

Information is out there. Here are 2 links to Blogs regarding education and GIS:

https://community.esri.com/community/education/blog/2019/03/04/hands-on-gis-workshops-on-analysis-da... 

This contains contact information for teachers who wish to mentor or be mentored by other teachers. Probably a very good place to start.

There's a lot of great (and free) resources on the Learn ArcGIS website - especially the instructional guides towards the bottom of the page.  Good luck!

Jeb:

I teach a middle school GIS course as an elective. If you use Google Drive, I can share resources.
