I would like to find homeschool families in the Phoenix-metro area with students in grades 7-12 to form a study group to focus on current events - specifically a weekly geography unit on a country making the news.

I am a former MS/HS social studies teacher with an MA in History. I currently write current events curriculum used by teachers around the country. Since I'm no longer in the classroom, I get very little feedback from students on what I write. I'd therefore like to create a win-win scenario in which I teach a free weekly current events geography class to homeschoolers and in turn get immediate feedback from Middle School and High School students in a classroom setting.

I am looking into meeting rooms at the ASU-West campus library, however, if there is more interest in the East Valley that could be accommodated. Please feel free to contact me via this forum or at focusonthenews at gmail dot com.

Might also look into using GoToMeeting / webcam to experiment with distance learning at the same time, assuming you have sufficient funding.
