Homeschool Cartography Courses


If you live near Portland, Maine and have homeschooled children, there is a cartography course being offered through the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education of the University of Southern Maine.  The four-part homeschooling cartography course is offered at two levels: intermediate for children aged 10-12 and secondary students aged 13-16.  The classes look at introductory information about maps and map projections, a view of pre American Revolution European maps, an overview of Maine’s development through maps, and the development of tourism from 1600-1900.

Sign up is limited to twenty-five participants in each class.  The classes meet once a week during the months of January and February 2012.
