Get out in the geography!
As many educators know, experiencing the landscape in person brings to life the maps, data and curriculum that we are giving students. A great way to experience the globe is to visit a confluence. Yes, that's confluence not conference. What is a confluence? It's the intersections of latitude and longitude all over the globe. There's a group of globe trekkers that make it their mission to visit as many of these intersections/confluences as possible. My good friend and collegue, Dr. Joseph Kerski, is one such adventurer. I joined him this fall while we were in Lake Tahoe. You can read about our journey at http://www.confluence.org/confluence.php?visitid=12953.
