NCDPI: Charting Horizons

Recorded April 2, 2024

Who and what are maps for? What do they tell us about the people who made them? How can we use maps to better understand the world around us? OER Project’s approach to geography and the use of maps offers students a window on the worlds and minds of mapmakers while providing them with a clear understanding of the power of place. In this session, educators will explore some of OER Project’s collection of maps and practice strategies to assist students in using these sources to analyze the places that shape our understanding of world history.

About North Carolina Department of Public Instruction & OER Project Professional Development Series

North Carolina schools leadership and OER Project believe that teachers are the key to providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead our country into the future. In that spirit, we are collaborating to provide a series of workshops for teachers looking to add a few new tools to their toolbox. Developing students’ skills in any social studies classroom is imperative for understanding the content. These sessions will dive deep into a particular skill and leave you with ideas and tools that can be implemented immediately in your classroom. OER Project team members will work with North Carolina schools to design each session with your needs in mind. We are excited to begin this partnership and look forward to learning together throughout the school year.
