Using the Geo-Inquiry Process for Student-Led Field Experiences in the “Four Corners” of Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Alliance for Geographic Education (OKAGE) conducted four separate Geo-Inquiry projects during the Spring 2021 semester. In order to conduct these projects, OKAGE partnered with four schools in the “Four Corners” of Oklahoma. OKAGE worked with teachers in Broken Bow High School (Southeast), Cache High School (Southwest), Hooker Junior High (Northwest), and Owasso Seventh Grade Center (Northeast) to develop four unique, student-led field experiences. Students at Broken Bow High School conducted their project on forest health and wildfire risk in the Hochatown Wildland Urban Interface; Cache High School students examined the geology and geography of the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge as these topics relate to Environmental Conservation; students at Hooker Junior High investigated how COVID-19 impacted the park in terms of visitation, land use, and wildlife; and Owasso Seventh Grade Center Students researched impacts of the Tulsa Race Massacre upon the demographics of their community.
