6 conference presentations on various economic and political geography topics given at NCGE 2013 as a part of the APHG strand.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
The last two mornings in Denver, CO there was a series of presentations of economic and political geography given in front of a capacity crowd. 6 of the educators have agreed to share the slides of their presentations with the broader geography education community and you can access them all here. See also this livebinder with resources for teaching APHG to 9th graders (which can be adapted to older students as well). This was a fantastic professional development event and we are all thankful that they were willing to share these resources.

These conference presentations show the importance that geography plays in the roles of both politics and economics. The impact that geography has on economics is a huge one. You could argue that geography is used as a scale in some instances in economics because of the land structure and locating were certain areas are.If you are able to locate certain things or find out where you want to put certain things in a place geography allows you to do so using economics.
