Massachusetts Geographic Alliance 

Geography Teacher Consultants



Since 1998, a selected group of teachers from Massachusetts have participated in Geography Summer Institutes. These Teacher Consultants (TCs) have received intensive training in both geography content and in geography teaching methods. By completing the Geography institute, these TCs have indicated their willingness to be part of a growing corps of educators who are committed to enhancing geography learning and teaching in our schools. These TCs may be contacted for advice on effective geography teaching methods.
