THE DELAWARE CENTER FOR GEOGRAPHIC EDUCATION

Originally created in 1989 as the Delaware Geographic Alliance (DGA), the Delaware Center for Geographic Education (DCGE) has reemerged as a center dedicated to geographic education in the State of Delaware. Our mission is to improve the geographic and environmental literacy of K-12 educators and students at all public and private school institutions within the State. We are expanding the scope of the DCGE to include students in our new mission as well as continuing the original charge given to the DGA to focus on providing K-12 teachers with standards-based instruction and assistance in geography.

We have a number of specific projects planned. Our funding for this first year of the DCGE is limited but we aim to have a big impact as geography education in the state has not had a support center since the demise of the DGA.

At present, our staff consists of Drs. David R. Legates and Mary Schorse. Please feel free to contact either of us if you have any questions or require assistance from the Center.

Geographic Literacy in Delaware

We are a group of educators and teachers dedicated to enhancing and assisting the teaching of geography in both public and private schools across the State. The other social studies content areas - civics, economics, and history - each have funded teacher support organizations; we serve that function for Geography.
