The EarthView team is very pleased to be joining our colleagues at NERC 45 -- the 45th annual Northeast Regional Conference of the National Council on Social Studies. This meeting takes place each year in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and brings together teachers of social studies from throughout New England.

On Saturday, EarthView was part of a program for science teachers on Cape Cod, and this week it is part of a program for social studies teachers from all over New England. This is because geography is a subject that has connections to many other subjects -- as the diagram below illustrates.

The relationship between geography and the other social studies subjects is so important that the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance will be hosting a Geography Policy Forum as part of the conference. We hope it will be just the first of many public forums held throughout Massachusetts over the next year.
