Mapmaking with Children
About Mapmaking with Children
The current crisis in geography education has spawned several new books on mapmaking, many of which advocate either recitation and drill or a conceptual top-down model that ignores children's interests. Mapmaking with Children presents an inspired alternative. Maintaining that there is no substitute for hands-on experience, David Sobel places the initial emphasis on local projects—projects that begin in students’ own backyards and communities, projects that provide a sense of place.
