    “Thinking and learning in the humanities relies on understanding connections. The threads of our shared narrative rely on understanding interactions between people over time and in a place. This spatial literacy provides a critical set of skills for students to better understand the world they live in.

    This process is not hypothetical, and GIS FOR TEACHERS is a one-of-a-kind resource in helping teachers make the transition from aspiration to practice. Written by educators based on experience, this collection provides meaningful and relevant resources that allow for the construction of a learning environment infused with geoliteracy. This guide is an invaluable resource for all teachers who want to create instruction with hands-on geographic inquiry.” – Andy Mink, VP of Education Programs, National Humanities Center
