“Maps, truth and belief have a complicated relationship with one another.”
Whether you are teaching young students the essentials of reading maps or helping high school students understand the role of data in their lives, Bending Lines: Maps and Date from Distortion to Deception, a new exhibition from the Norman B. Leventhal Map and Education Center, has something to offer you.
Explore selected maps during an education tour with Michelle LeBlanc, Director of Education which emphasize major themes and ideas for talking about maps in the classroom. Learn how to access two new lessons, one that focuses on teaching about map projections and a second that explores how maps and data can be used to tell different stories about kids in Boston.
This tour is open to all, but will focus on opportunities for educators to use Bending Lines exhibition materials in their classrooms. Online meeting details will be shared with registered participants.
