Charting Horizons - Geography Skills Clinic

Session recorded October 25, 2023

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.
