Review of today, and readings for Monday, March 20

Today we used bubbl.us to visualize hypotheses and related data that support them, including primary and secondary sources. Please bring your mind maps to class on Monday — on your phone is OK. We spent some time reviewing the principles of one-point perspective drawing and practiced sketching the frame, vanishing point, and horizon line to sketch our classroom — and added windows and doors to the room. We then turned the basic sketch into a street scene.

On Monday, March 20 we’ll explore┬áhistorical maps, and we’ll visit the map division of the New York Public Library on March 22. Please read the following:

Historic Maps as HistorianÔÇÖs Evidence┬á(also the Mapping and Political Power section)
Making Sense of Maps (especially these sections: What is a Map? Where do I begin? Who Made this Map and Why? and How is the data Organized?)

Site report #3 is due on Wednesday, March 22 by the beginning of class (template here). A revised schedule for the rest of the semester’s┬áclass meetings can be found here and on the Syllabus page.
