Don’t take our word for it! Ask our 2020 Fellows:
… I loved getting to spend so much time engaging with maps. It was such fun to geek out with other teachers who were equally excited to play with maps! I also got so much out of the push to use maps and mapmaking in a more consistent and meaningful way in my classroom.
It was an incredible blend of learning something new and producing something practical and usable for my classroom.
There was an incredible vibe. I don’t always love experiences like these where I have to meet new people. But because of the way it was set up I was really able to value their work, see them as colleagues, and want to get their feedback. That was really nice.
