DC Teachers Conduct Interactive Classroom Tours With Help from National Geographic Society and!

On Saturday, April 5, 2008, two dozen Washington, DC teachers stormed the streets of Chinatown with disposable cameras, photocopies, and a mission: to learn the ins-and-outs of how to conduct an interactive walking tour of Washington, DC – without breaking the bank. To these teachers, isn’t just a “great idea” or “something to think about,” but a way to accomplish an out-of-the-box learning experience with their students, which might not otherwise be possible.
The Atlantic Team, in conjunction with the National Geographic Society, informed these teachers about the process of requesting the “interactive” elements of their walking tours: the camcorders, digital cameras, voice recorders, and other supplies that would help them invest students in learning about their communities.
We are so excited to read their proposals and to connect these teachers with willing donors that care about geography instruction in the nation’s capital.
