1. Are these the same maps found in Susan Wise Bauer's "The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child" history curriculum?
Yes, we are privileged to have some of our maps included in her recently published history narrative. The difference is that these packets of maps contain the complete collection for the ancient and medieval time periods in an 8.5 x 11 inch format and they comes loose-leaf for your convenience in duplication and adding into a notebook or posting onto a bulletin board. All 24 Ancient maps and 16 Middle Ages maps correspond to the reading selections in The Story of the World, Vol 1 and 2. The other two map packets will also correspond with the successive volumes of The Story of the World as they are published. Lesson plans for using these maps are included in the packets, but additional activities are not. Knowledge Quest Maps with lesson plans also work very well with other world history curricula.
2. Will I have permission to make copies?
Yes, permission is granted to the purchaser to make copies for his or her individual and family needs. Duplication for an entire classroom, school or school system is strictly prohibited. Call (503) 663-1210 for information on quantity sale discounts.
3. Are these maps bound in book form?
No. These packets of maps with included lesson plans come loose-leaf and shrink wrapped for your convenience. They are printed on sturdy 60# 8.5 x 11 inch paper for extra durability. Loose-leaf pages make for easier duplication and use. No pages to cut or tear out of a book. The complete set comes assembled for you in an attractive view binder along with extra unlabeled maps for more general multi-purpose use. Also, the CD-ROM version of the complete set is now available as of September, 2002.
4. Why are some areas left unlabeled on each map?
Purposely some areas on each map have been left unlabeled for the student to complete. This is where the Lesson Plans come in. Teacher and student are encouraged to discuss the map briefly, label an average of 3 new or familiar portions of the map and then the student is asked to color it to completion.
5. Do you have a CD-ROM version available?
Yes! It is now available as of September, 2002.
6. Do you have maps available that are completely unlabeled?
Yes! Completely unlabeled maps are included in our complete set which is now available. Also, we have made available just the set of 18 unlabeled maps of the World, U.S. and Selected Regions which can be purchased separately.
