4-2-13Once a month we’re sharing MUST SEE MAPS…just because they’re cool and sometimes the really cool stuff doesn’t fit into one of our tidy theme weeks. Today’s resource is from our own Barbaree Duke. Barbaree specializes in integrating GIS education into English & Language Arts curriculum. 

from Barbaree’s blog: “So often my students had challenges connecting with iambic verse, haiku rules and lofty language.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  Poetry is art and communication all rolled into one.  Get away from the textbook and go to some new places with poetry!”

Try the Poetry Atlas to connect poems and places in your student’s mind.

Be sure to read Barbaree’s full article on connecting poetry to the map with even more cool free resources!

At GISetc.com we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
