The interactive map would be a great addition to a death penalty discussion, especially with younger students. It would be a great help if you have a lot of visual learners. It could also be used with a webquest to help students with background information before a discussion. It would also be a great addition because it gives a great deal of basic information the students could then use to help them find more in depth information. One critique would be the website does not give information other than statistics about individual states. It would have been helpful for there to have been more information about each state's laws other than having and not having the death penalty.
The interactive maps that you guys found have great value in the classroom setting. I could see myself using these learning objects in my own classroom. A teacher could come up with multiple critical thinking questions for each of the learning objects. Then, students could respond to the questions based on their exploration of these maps, along with the statistics and facts that they provide. One critique on the learning objects—they don’t provide much in-depth detail, but I guess that could be something that could be further researched by a class.
Well done, Amy, Tully, and Teddy! This is a great set of resources and I appreciate all of your hard work!
