What is Powerful Geography?
Powerful Geography is an innovative approach to teaching and learning about Geography. Every student in our classroom is different and no class is ever the same, yet teachers and educators continue to teach the same content and curriculum over and over again. Powerful Geography is about making geography education relevant to our students by connecting to their interests and aspirations. Instead of teaching them facts to memorize, Powerful Geography dives deeper into the standards (curriculum) by showing the student what they can achieve if they apply their geographic knowledge in their personal life and in their desired job or career. Our Powerful Geography website includes a large list of jobs that use geographic knowledge and skills one way or another along with other useful resources and lesson plans. We hope that teachers share in our quest to show how important geography is to our lives and our future.
