Small Bites: Educator Social and Map Giveaway

For the 2021-22 school year the Map Center is offering a series of FREE “small bites” professional development sessions foregrounding teaching about Boston through a social justice lens, though the sessions are easily adaptable to other municipalities. These 6 sessions will run after school and will be a mix of in-person and Zoom sessions designed to send you off with great map-based lessons and resources to immediately implement in your classroom. All K-12 teachers are welcome. Sign up for one or all of them!

Our first get-together is an opportunity for you to meet us and each other, tour our new exhibition Bending Lines: Maps and Data from Distortion to Deception, load up your vehicle with free classroom maps (from class sets to beautiful large wall maps of the world), and enjoy some small bites! We’ll be here from 3:00 to 5:30 pm. Drop in and stay as little or as long as you like!
