HOW TO ANALYZE MAPS AND ATLASESRead maps to understand the world, make maps to explain the world


This skills-based curriculum teaches students to decode maps in order to understand the world. Then they reinforce their interpretive skills by making maps that encode and communicate geographic information. A PowerPoint® presentation introduces the various types of maps, as well as map symbols and conventions, before teaching students to ask geographic questions; acquire, organize, and analyze geographic information; and to synthesize and communicate geographic knowledge. The unit also includes lecture notes and reproducible activity pages, and Geographic Literacy, a set of 22"h x 14"w posters, summarizes the main guidelines for critical analysis of geographic information.
