Using Maps as Evidence: Lessons in American Social and Economic History. Instructional Activities Series IA/S-12.
Parker, Edmond T.; Conzen, Michael P.
These activities are part of a series of 17 teacher-developed instructional activities for geography at the secondary-grade level described in SO 009 140. The activity involves students in the use of maps as a source of information about American social and economic history. It outlines six learning activities which employ inductive methods. Given specific map information, students draw generalizations about the following topics: (1) expansion west of the Appalachian mountains in the early 1800s; (2) the logic of work place and residence patterns; (3) where people choose to live; (4) railroad lines on the eve of the Civil War; (5) farm protest movements; and (6) social patterns in a city neighborhood. Background and procedures for each learning activity are specified and maps are provided. (DB)
