Compos-ing Where We Live: Writing Narr./Exp. Essays w/Google Maps
Using Google My Maps, I will explain how I have transformed explanatory and narrative essays (aligned with CCSS standards) into "spatial writing." Instead of linear paragraph structure, My Maps allows students to "Pin" writing to locations that either explicitly connect or symbolically relate to locations on a map. Students can also add photos, explain connections with images, and create borders. Using Michael C. Pennell's article, "Replacing the Literacy Narrative: Composing in Google Maps," I will show, with his and my own student samples, how allowing students to map their writing produces real digital writing in an era where students and teachers are required to transform traditional composition. Along with student samples, I will share prompts and brief pacing guides for assignments. Participants will also create a My Map to explore some of the features of the technology tool. 4-5, 6-8, 9-12, Higher Education
