AGS GEOGRAPHY TEACHER FELLOWS INITIATIVE
The American Geographical Society’s (AGS) Geography Teacher Fellows Initiative is a selective nationwide professional development program for Geography teachers who teach Advanced Placement (AP™) Human Geography (APHG). The Geography Teacher Fellows Initiative was started in 2016, as a means to recognize the teachers from across the United States who teach APHG and provide them with a special year to celebrate the unique experiences they give to students who take the APHG course.
Each year, 50 teachers from across the United States are selected as AGS Geography Teacher Fellows. During the Fellows’ year in the Geography Teacher Fellows Initiative, they receive an invaluable experience by participating in numerous activities aimed at expanding their knowledge base in geography and geospatial science, as well as give them opportunities to interact with other Teacher Fellows and the various and diverse members of the AGS community.
