Hello fellow Geographers,

As you may be aware the New Hampshire Geographic Alliance has just published the 3rd edition of our NH School Atlas.   Please take a moment to answer the short 15 question survey regarding your use of atlases in the classroom.  Please take the survey even if you don’t use the NH School Atlas.  This survey will be used to inform our decisions regarding professional development and curriculum development.  Keene State Geography majors are also using this as part of their seminar research project.   Please complete the survey by Saturday November 15, 2014.
