HIST1301 Map Exercises

Before starting, read these Map Exercise Tips.

It is my firm belief that History and Geography are inseparable, for the simple reason that both are so obviously affected by the other. Moreover, along with other educators I am distressed by the seeming lack of geographic knowledge not only among college students but the population as a whole. For these reasons, and therefore because I am convinced that my students will benefit from it, I include a map study component in both my History courses. Below, students will find links to the maps that make up that portion of the course, along with the downloadable Map Exercises that I require students to complete.

NOTE: In order to read/download/print the assignments, which are provided here as PDFs, you must have the free Adobe Acrobat PDF reader installed on your computer.
