Geography Education on WBZ Radio

As most First Parish members know, parishioners Vernon Domingo and James Hayes-Bohanan are geography professors who do a lot of outreach work with K-12 teachers and students.

Recently (for the past decade, actually), they have been working throughout the state to expand and improve the teaching of geography by changing the educational frameworks to match national standards and by once again creating a pathway to become a high-school geography teacher.

Recently, they had the opportunity to take this discussion to a national audience through the WBZ/CBS radio program Nightside with Dan Rea. Those who missed the program can hear the archived version; more information about the current national and state efforts is on the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance blog at
