    Dear Geographic Educator:

    The purpose of this communication is to invite your input on issues
    and questions relating to Geography for Life: National Geography
    Standards (1994).

    In anticipation of 2004, the tenth anniversary of their publication,
    the Geographic Education National Implementation Project (GENIP)
    Steering Committee is beginning a review process to determine how the
    Standards have been received within the education community. The
    Committee has asked me to launch that effort by acquiring some basic
    information so that informed decisions can be made about the future
    of the Geography Standards in the United States. My purpose is to
    invite comment about the effectiveness of the Standards, how they are
    being used, and what constitutes their strengths and weaknesses.

    I would greatly appreciate your taking a few minutes to consider the
    attached questions. You may answer them as listed or write your
    reflective impressions in a paragraph or two. Whatever way you
    choose to respond, be assured that your reaction will play an
    important role in the review initiative that the GENIP Steering
    Committee has undertaken. If you would like to share these questions
    with colleagues, their input would be most welcome.

    As a small token of my thanks for your efforts, I am also attaching a
    set standards-based problems in geography that you might be able to

    Please return your response to me at (or by mail or fax).

    Thank you for your help.
