Hope that you all had an awesome holiday. It was such a long term and I am sure you are all looking forward to a much shorter but perhaps busier one.
The AGTA have a lot planned in Term 2 – courses, scholarship workshops for students and teachers and of course resources. We are adding things to the website all the time so check in regularly to see what is new. Also, join our Facebook page (new links and ideas are added almost daily) and follow us on Twitter for new ideas (@AucklandGeog).
Some of you will be field tripping this term; almost all of us will have internals by the truckload and we will have lots of wonderful things to do to engage our students.
Jane Evans has decided to put together a power point that goes through each external standard at each level and unpack them for the common errors. She will take this power point around cluster groups in the region so we all can discuss it as well as sharing other useful information in geography.
For those of you who are doing scholarship geography this year – Anna Wilson at Wellington East Girl’s has set up a google doc for teachers to upload and use resources connected to this years theme around urbanization. Do take advantage of this as it is a great way for the geography community to come together and share rather than us all reinventing the wheel!
