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 DCGE has replaced the DGA as the state level organization supporting geography education. We remain staunchly committed to the vision that every Delaware student receives an education that engages them in the geographic exploration of the world around them. We are excited to again be working with our partners at the University of Delaware, Delaware Technical Community College, the Delaware GeoEducation Committee, and the Delaware Department of Education to develop and expand programs which support teachers and students as the learn about WHY WHERE MATTERS!

The Statistics in Schools (SIS) program offers free materials for teachers, created by teachers, to educate students from pre-K through 12th grade about the value and everyday uses of census data. STATISTICS IN SCHOOLS. The video below explains the Statistics in Schools program.

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.
