Geofest 49

Every spring and fall SCGA hosts this professional development conference, usually located in Columbia, SC. K-12 educators, pre-service teachers, college instructors, media specialists, curriculum coordinators, and the general public are invited to attend. A typical Geofest offers content lessons presented by USC geography faculty, standards-based teaching strategies for the elementary, middle and high school classroom, and sessions on using the SCGA teaching materials.

Geofest 49 includes a strand on Celebrating Black History Month: Art, Economics, and Geography in The Great Migration coordinated with SC Economics and the South Carolina Department of Education.
