THE DELAWARE CENTER FOR GEOGRAPHIC EDUCATION

During the suspension of face to face school activities due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, DCGE is working closely with its UD Social Studies affiliates and the Social Studies Coalition of Delaware to identify standards focused instructional materials and activities that parents and teachers can share with their students. We'll be adding a new folder under our Resources tab labeled COVID 19 where you will be able to find resources. Our DCGE FaceBook page is also posting links to resources. For particular needs, send us an email with your request.
