Digital maps and online mapping tools are critical to understand authors mindsets, elements of plot and character development. This lesson is focused on teaching “context and setting” using geospatial websites and online tools.
We are excited to provide more free resources to help your students succeed. Our resident English teacher,Barbaree Duke, will be featured this month on our YouTube channel. We have created a series of 4 videos called “An English Teacher’s Guide to Mapping” that outlines several ways to implement geospatial technology into traditional classroom content. In addition, the videos showcase rich content that is perfect for Black History Month, such as The Watsons Go to Birmingham, Langston Hughes, Twain and Slavery, and more. Starting Monday, February 7th and every Monday in February, look for her informative videos on our channel. We’re sure you’ll get some great ideas to use in your classroom setting!
