Calling all teachers, educators, education students and librarians:
What do maps reveal about geography and social conditions? How are maps tools for teaching problem-solving skills? What are some ways to integrate literacy and social-studies learning?
Learn that and more at the New Mexico History Museum.
Drawing on the extensive map collection of the Fray Angélico Chávez History Library, educators Dennis and Judy Reinhartz, along with librarian Patricia Hewitt, have developed a free curriculum you can use in the classroom. From the earliest Spanish colonial maps through the Mexican period, U.S. Territorial era and modern-day guides, the lesson plans challenge students to use a variety of learning skills that will help them better understand geography, history, and social studies.
This is a one-day session offered twice:
Monday, June 22, 9 am–5 pm
Monday, June 29,9 am–5 pm
