A SOCIAL STUDIES COURSE THAT RUNS ON JET FUEL 

By sharing the big picture and challenging middle and high school students to look at the world from many different perspectives, we hope to inspire a greater love of learning and help them better understand how we got here, where we’re going, and how they fit in. BHP is like nothing else. But if you had to categorize it, you could say it’s a social studies course that runs on jet fuel. Co-created by teachers, students, curriculum experts, and a dedicated team of tech developers, BHP was inspired by the work of David Christian and is supported by Bill Gates. The fundamental goal is to provide a world class, ready-for-the-classroom resource available to everyone, everywhere. For free.

Anyone who wants to be president needs to understand these 5 maps

Anyone who wants to be president needs to understand these 5 maps | K-12 Web Resources - History & Social Studies | Scoop.it
Parag Khanna argues that these five maps are critical to understand the world we live in.

 

Maps shape how we see the world.  But most of the maps hanging on our walls are dangerously incomplete because they emphasize political borders rather than functional connections.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 22, 2016 12:11 AM

These 5 maps in this article are a sneak peek preview from the new book Connectography by Parag Khanna.  These maps all highlight interactions across political borders which is Khanna's big thesis.  For example, the map above emphasizes political, economic, and environmental linkages of NAFTA and minimizes the national divisions.

Here is a great educational tool we came across today as we were working on the list of social studies websites for elementary students. Reading a Map is an interactive web tool provided by the National Park Service that helps students develop their reading map skills. Students get to learn how to read different data on the map, identify major types of maps and navigate their ways through the typography of a map.
