Need

Dear Educators,

Much of our job as teachers is identifying and fulfilling the needs of our students and ourselves! It can be hard to distinguish between needs and wants in both directions. We can misidentify something a student needs, like scaffolded reading, as something they want, and do them a disservice. We can misidentify something we need as something we want, like enough sleep, and find ourselves at a disadvantage.
At Maps101 we strive to fulfill your needs and wants with content. We know you want effective, engaging, fun content for your students, and we also know you need to fulfill content gaps and produce lessons in line with your state’s standards. The content this week is all about needs and wants, and we hope it sparks some well needed and wanted conversation with your students!
Additionally, we would love to hear from you about what more we can provide. What do you need? What do you want? Send us an email at info@maps101.com. We want to provide you with better content, but to do that we need your input!

Geography News Network

Want to get into a building? You’ll need a way in! When we study archaeology and historical architecture, we rarely consider how access was provided for people with disabilities. This article designed for Elementary and Middle School students talks about a study by an archaeologist in Long Beach concerning that very issue! Ask your students, how were the needs of all humans prepared for historically as compared with modern times?

Sustainable Logging

We need to use natural resources, but we want to preserve our planet! How do we balance that? Sustainable logging is one approach that allows us to use wood for a multitude of purposes while attempting to preserve the environment. How effective do you and your students think it is?

Why We Do What We Do

One of the things our students need from us more than anything is a safe place to learn. This talk by Brene Brown at South by Southwest talks about how to create a culture of safety in our classrooms to support learning. We all want to bring empathy, support, encouragement, and confidence to our classrooms, and Dr. Brown does a wonderful job of breaking these big concepts down into practical applications that we can begin to practice in our classrooms.
