    Place-based Place-based Presentation Transcript

        • Find a Story… Map a Story… Tell a Story:
      • Using Place-based Storytelling to Teach Historical and Geographical Thinking
    • “ We organize information on maps in order to see our knowledge in a new way… To ask for a map is to say “ Tell me a story .” ~ Peter Tuchi (Maps of the Imagination: The Writer as Cartographer)
    • “ I like to say I never travel without a map, but then none of us do. We all travel with many maps, folded neatly in the glove compartment of our minds- some of them communal and universal, like our automatic familiarity with seasonal constellations and the shape of continents, and some as particular as the local roads we have traipsed. As we navigate on the trip Dante called “our life’s way”, we are creating our private maps. ~ Katherine Harmon (from You are Here )
    • “ Like memory, geography is associative. In this process I call orientating we all carry a personal atlas in our brains” ~ Katherine Harmon (from You are Here )
    • “ To orientate is to hop back and forth between landscape and time, geography and emotion, knowledge and behavior.” ~ Katherine Harmon (from You are Here )
    • “ I am told there are people who do not care for maps, and I find it hard to believe.” ~ Robert Lewis Stevenson
    • Where Am I?
    •  
    • Place-based Storytelling We are bound to our surroundings and to each other by memory ... but where is memory located? Individual mapmaking sparks a consideration of one's relationship with one's environment, with the continuum of our lives, and with the development of our own memory through time.
    • Think of the first place you remember living. Think of the streets, pathways, bodies of water, train tracks and intersections you remember.
