I teach Louisiana Studies at Denham Springs Junior High School in Denham Springs, Louisiana. My classroom is in desperate need of an updated set of wall maps. Although I do have a set of world maps now, it still has the Soviet Union labeled! I believe that it is time to update!
I teach approximately 180 students, and I believe these maps would be used for a minimum of 10 years. Based on these assumptions, your donation would assist at least 1800 students.
With these wall maps, I will be able to teach students map reading skills, while teaching them the locations of all the places that we study. Although the class that I teach is LA Studies, we are often learning about places around the world that are in some way related to LA.
Again, updating my classroom set of maps is way overdue! My students geography skills should improve dramatically with these new learning tools. Thank you for considering to assist me in this effort.
