Sparking Curiosity - Geography, the C3 Framework and the Inquiry Arc 


Paul Nagel – Professor of Geography, North American University, Houston, TX
Joe Stoltman – Professor of Geography, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI
Robert Morrill – Professor Emeritus – Geography, Virginia Tech University, Blacksburg, VA
Jim Hauf – Veteran Geography Teacher, Berkeley Middle School, Berkeley, MO

Description: Join a panel of classroom and content experts as they share how to spark your students’ curiosity about the world through geographic reasoning.

The NCSS’s C3 Framework is structured around an Inquiry Arc that places student questions and questioning at the center of the learning process. The National Geography Standards similarly place inquiry at the center of geographic learning. During this webinar, learn how to help students apply geography’s unique spatial and environmental perspectives to critical social studies content by exploring links between Dimension 2 of the Inquiry Arc and the National Geography Standards.

Challenge your students to think about issues such as where their food comes from, and how it was transported to market; how globalization is reflected in the products found in students’ homes; and the use of linguistic clues to study the movement of peoples and goods throughout history.  In this engaging webinar for K-16 social studies teachers, examples will be shared on how to get your students to think critically, think geographically and think about what it means to be a geographer.
