Event Description

Making maps fascinates children and we should use this intrinsic desire to shape developmentally appropriate curriculum in social studies, math and language arts.

This practical and participatory workshop will include:

*review of research on children's neighborhood maps
*drawing maps that represent the 10 year old view of the landscape
*the presentation of a clear developmental model of children's geographic understanding
*examples of integrated curriculum based on this developmental model
*indoors mapmaking activities suitable for early elementary grades
*an outdoors mapmaking/ treasure hunt activity that involves local exploration and a literacy challenge, adaptable for grades k-6
*activities with state road maps for upper grades social studies and math activities

The workshop will range from developmental theory to brass-tacks practical, from serious reflecting on the purposes of education to the giddy thrill of finding
hidden treasure. Come prepared to draw maps, solve problems, plan curriculum and perhaps get a bit wet and muddy!

Teresa Conley replied to Teresa Conley's discussion I need your voice! What do you believe about your own efficacy for influencing student learning while working under education sanctions?
"PLEASE also leave your contact information. I would like hear more about your experiences. It sounds that your previous experiences may be what I am looking to hear about and what you believe should been happening.  Thanks for your help. Teresa"
