Geography Coach

From George Mason University in Virginia comes an encouraging and inspiring story of a partnership to promote geography literacy. Basketball Coach Jim Larranga was already incorporating geography in his middle-school summer camps when Geography Department Chair Allen Falconer worked with him to develop the Mason World Ball. Both educators agree that geography literacy is important, and that it can be made fun.

They worked with National Geographic and ESRI to produce globes that are also regulation basketballs. This creativity is part of a renaissance in geography at George Mason.

  3. Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the net the easiest thing to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other people consider issues that they just do not realize about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    entire thing with no need side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
