Why do people migrate? What factors determine city location, growth, and development? How does place influence the spread of disease? These questions form the basis of inquiry for geographers, teachers, and students. In exploring such questions, this video workshop for seventh- through twelfth-grade teachers provides a strong foundation in geography content and inquiry teaching skills, as outlined in the National Geography Standards. The video programs combine case studies that profile locations around the globe, engaging classroom segments, and commentary from geography and pedagogy experts. Activities and discussion questions from the accompanying print guide and Web site supplement the programs, providing for a richer understanding of geography education.
