Mapping the Story -- The Power of Perspective

 Students will look at various maps to identify perspectives, purposes, intended audiences, and overall messages and implications that are contained in them. We will then transfer our comments about the maps to a discussion of stories and texts and how we will analyze, use, and critique what they tell us. Stories and texts steer us in the same way that maps can, but paying attention to how we are guided is important to finding our way.
