NC Geographic Alliance: Geography ; from the mountains to the sea witten beside map of North CarolinaCongratulations to Douglas Byrd Middle School (DBMS) Science teacher, Mrs. Talicia Smith, and Librarian, Mrs. Kristy Sartain, for winning a North Carolina Geographic Alliance Geo-Inquiry Institute Fellowship. They were chosen from more than 30 team applications to travel to NCCAT at Ocracoke over the summer and learn how to implement the Geo-Inquiry Process into their teaching.   Topics they will learn include: History and Geography of NC Coasts and National Parks • What is Geo-Inquiry and what are useful methods • Virtual Reality implementation in the classroom • StoryMaps and GIS applications available online • Creating and editing videos and photographs during field trips on Ocracoke Island. The Geo-Inquiry Process relies on using a geographic perspective, offering a unique lens to analyze space, place, and the interconnections between both the human and natural world. Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process, students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities.
