Our purpose is the promotion and enhancement of geographic knowledge in the schools and among the general populace of Illinois. To achieve this purpose, the Alliance maintains a strong grassroots organization of geographic educators from schools and universities, participates in educational reform at the district, state, and national levels. We engage in an active program of preservice and in-service teacher education, develop curriculum materials based on the National Geography Standards, and foster public awareness of the importance of geography in our society.
Eligibility: Open invitation for U.S. educators from all disciplines, Pre-K to Grade 12 in-service teachers and Community College faculty, and pre-service teachers are also welcome.
The dates for the 2019 Delegation of APHG teachers to South Korea are June 26 U.S. departure and July 2 return. APHG teachers are given priority to participate in the U.S. Delegation. Other high school geography teachers may also apply. The program is designed to provide an international experience that will expand your world view, and especially your knowledge of the Korean Peninsula. If you are an APHG teacher and interested, please contact Joseph Stoltman (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive an application.
