    What better way to teach young people the power of maps and the limitless depth of geography than a half court-sized map of a continent or state map on which they can explore, travel around, compete, collaborate and have lots of fun? Giant Traveling Maps are an enormously entertaining and educationally powerful tool for introducing geography and map reading skills to students, grades K-12. This evening session is designed to introduce K-12 teachers to the MISD’s Giant Traveling Maps, orient them to the lessons and activities, and schedule their school for 1 week of use with the map of their choice. The MISD has purchased a Giant Map of Asia and with the support of the Michigan Geographic Alliance has available a Giant Map of Michigan as well. Both maps are available to schools to borrow during the 2018-2019 school year. Designed to promote geographic literacy by igniting interest in geography, the maps and accompanying activities incorporate physical movement and games to teach students place names, physical geography, and cultural geography as well as map reading skills. The map requires an indoor space the size of a small gym or basketball court. It can be rolled up and stored, but it’s best to have the space reserved for as much of the day as possible. The Michigan map also comes with a trunk full of lessons/activities and the materials to use for them. Materials for the Asia map are being developed.

    Facilitated by Ruth Cummins, the creator of this Classroom Government program and veteran practitioner and elementary teacher, this 1-day workshop will arm teachers with everything they need to create a student run classroom government. Teachers will experience the learning first hand, see a classroom government in action (with real students in a real classroom!), and have an opportunity to adapt the materials and create a personalized plan for their own students that meets the needs of their own schedule and classroom. Running a classroom government only takes up about an hour a week, and has virtually zero cost. By mid-year, the students´ understanding of how government works is remarkable. They haven´t simply memorized facts and definitions. They’ve lived it. They experience the frustrations of debating their opinions with a group, and lobbying members of other bodies to support a bill. They plan the details of classroom parties and experience the tax consequence of the ’services’ they vote for.
