Jim Lerman's insight
Lots of great resources for working with students on infographics, cartoons, and a little bit on global projects. Davis is one of the great edu bloggers!
The image was selected by the renowned Edward Tufte as one of the best infographics of all time: "this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812. Beginning at the Polish-Russian border, the thick band shows the size of the army at each position. The path of Napoleon's retreat from Moscow in the bitterly cold winter is depicted by the dark lower band, which is tied to temperature and time scales."
Made in 1869.
