Google Maps Project

In Renee Boyd’s, History of St. Louis class, students are participating in a global project in entitled, “Greetings from…” Postcard Geography. The main goal of this project is to share famous landmarks, locations, or unique aspects of your home state or region. As a part of her class, Boyd’s students research a historical St. Louis neighborhood and create a presentation to share with the class. This year they are taking their presentations outside of the classroom and sharing them with the world by including them in a Google Map that is used by students and teachers worldwide and currently has over 30,000 views with feedback coming as far away as Australia asking for more resources on St. Louis. In addition, Boyd’s Anthropology class will also be sharing their spring semester research in the same manner.
