- Roosevelt AP Human Geography teacher Richard Katz has won a Distinguished Teaching Award from the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE). From SPS Communications:
The award recognizes teaching skills, leadership, professional development accomplishments, involvement in student activities, and development of innovative teaching materials and strategies.
Katz’s AP Human Geography students might explore just about anything having to do with cultural geography, languages, religions, development, urbanization – and patterns of how they impact and spread across different lands.
It is a required course for tenth-graders at the school, part of Roosevelt’s push to expand AP courses.
