Geographic Inquiry into Global Issues (GIGI)

Geographic Inquiry into Global Issues was developed at the Center for Geography Education at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The National Science Foundation provided the funds, with A. David Hill as the Project Director. The modules were drafted by teachers and scholars and then tested in classrooms throughout the United States. In the original publication, teachers received a classroom set of Student Data Books and one binder that contained the Teacher's Guide and supporting materials. Professor Hill recently secured permission to distribute the modules free of charge to anyone who can use them for educational purposes. Staff members at the University of Northern Colorado scanned every module and map and created PDF files. Special thanks go to Amanda Livingston who worked tirelessly to scan thousands of pages, and Elizabeth Buller and Kristen Kanoff for helping to make this possible. View GIGI >
