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.

The Almost Map of the USA

There are many great cartographically-themed XKCD comic strips. This particular one ALMOST looks right and finding the inaccuracies is a little harder than you might think. Questions to Ponder: When you see a map, do you assume that it is 100% accurate? If so, how come? Where you able to find the "missing states" in this psuedo-map?

Enhancing Geographic Literacy in Delaware

DCGE is a group of educators and practitioners working together to support the teaching of geography in public and private schools across the State. We work closely with our UD Social Studies Partners who similarly provide support to the content areas of Civics, Economics and History.
