Poster Session at the History of Ed

At the beginning of the year I was asked to participate in a poster session for the History of Education Society’s Annual Meeting. I have done a few things with maps, so I was asked to share resources and ideas for using maps with teaching history.

Not too many people came by, so I only spoke with two people. I had this list of resources for working with and teaching with maps:

History and Maps

Selected Websites (CHNM’s site on using maps in the classroom) (A list of map resources on the web, collected by GMU’s Echo project) (Library of Congress Map Collections) (A long list of map related websites for teaching history) (Historical Atlas of the Mediterranean) (Tons of maps sponsored by University of Texas at Austin) (US Gov. Flu Map) (Ancient World Mapping Center) (Hundreds of posts about strange maps. Very good discussion starters.)
