“Mapping Stereotypes: The Geography Of Prejudice”

| 0 comments

I’ve mentioned the “Mapping Stereotypes: The Geography Of Prejudice” site in the past, and have included some of their maps on The Best Sites For Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes list. They’ve recently added some new maps.

Their maps are different, though. They show places as how other see them — how Germans see the rest of Europe, how the U.S. see Europe, etc.

In looking at them again today, I came up with the idea of having my IB Theory of Knowledge students study the idea of “perception” by using these maps as model and make maps of our school — looking at it through the eyes of a teacher, a freshman, and a senior. It should be interesting.
