On more maps and fewer portraits:

Speaking as one who has loved maps since early childhood, I found that reading about Lewis and Clark while looking at a map like the one you show made the journey MUCH clearer to me. I think maps have been pushed aside to some extent because it's hard to teach children how to understand and learn from them. In fact, one of the ways that full inclusion classrooms modify the curriculum for children with developmental delays is to excuse them from having to learn much about maps or how to use them.
