Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the purpose of a map and how to read a map. 
Students will learn the basic elements of a map.
Students will learn how to create simple maps.
Students will learn how maps tell stories and lead to more questions.
Students will see the same story from differing perspectives. This will develop both empathy and critical thinking skills.
I have a degree in English and Social Studies Middle School Education. In addition, I taught social studies to both public school students and to my children for 11 years. I recently took a National Geographic course entitled "Mapping as a Visualization and Communication Tool in Your Classroom", where I learned the specific skills I will be teaching children in this fun class/club. I am passionate about the power of maps not only as a method for visualizing a story but also as a means to generate further questions and inquiry leading to better citizenship.
If we do not finish our maps during class, students will be assigned to work on them throughout the week. Students will be provided with a printable of the basic elements of the story's journey to utilize.
