Tyner, Judith A.
History Teacher, v20 n4 p455-64 Aug 1987
Examines the function of maps in forming images of the world. States that maps are subjective, inaccurate portrayals of the earth in that they exhibit the biases of their makers and hence their cultures. Recommends viewing several maps or different projections to become aware of strengths and limitations of map types. Includes suggested teaching strategies. (GEA)
