Two quick links today. The first (thanks Rob!) is a collection of 40 maps. I love using visual prompts with students, and these maps quickly and clearly communicate a wide range of information about our world. One in particular that I liked (#17, pictured above) is a map of the highest paid US public employees by state. Another good one is map #29, which shows how the economic center of gravity has shifted since 1 AD.
I’d also like to share a like to this online collection of poetry from the Occupy movement. I have an activity that I like to do based on global issues poetry, and this could be a good source for models.
