        This one hour video workshop introduces the 18 national geography standards, showing how they can explain the complexity of our geographic world. A case study of neighboring cities El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico highlights the importance of understanding spatial relationships and geography's effect on human lives. In addition, this workshop provides a framework for inquiry based teaching, introducing the five geographic skills associated with good scientific inquiry.
