GIS in the History Classroom is a guide for middle and secondary history teachers to the use of geographic information system (GIS) software in their classrooms. It is designed for iBooks on either a Mac or an iPad. Topics include:
• a rationale for the use of GIS software in the history classroom,
• effective classroom strategies,
• and technical issues related to developing materials for students.
Discussion throughout includes sample lessons that enable readers to see how GIS might be integrated into their own plans along with a variety of other, more traditional and familiar historical resources. Slide presentations are included that both illustrate the text and can be used as part of inservice presentations. A bibliography of additional resources is available along with references to the research cited.
