Knowledge Quest and Tapestry of Grace Team Up!

Media Release - July 19, 2005

Knowledge Quest and Tapestry of Grace have teamed up to create a customized map CD that is a big hit with Tapestry of Grace curriculum users.

Here is what Carla in VA has to say...

"I just bought the MapAids CD for Tapestry of Grace Year 2. I LOVE it! This will definitely make my life so much easier since each map is made to fit the weekly geography assignment perfectly. Thank you, Knowledge Quest!"

What makes this CD so special? The information on the maps come straight out of the Tapestry of Grace Teacher's Manual. Where ordinary maps fall short because of not enough information, too much information, or the wrong information, these maps hit the target right on. Tapestry of Grace users will no longer experience the frustration of not finding what they are looking for on their maps.

Map links on the CD are set up by week plans and there is a map for grammar stage students, dialetic and rhetoric stage students, as well as additional overlay maps for those students preparing a transparency atlas for the year.

This project began as a spontaneous idea last fall. Marcia Somerville, the author and creator of Tapestry of Grace, a multi-age history and writing curriculum, approached Terri Johnson, creator of Knowledge Quest maps, to consider a joint venture. Terri would study the Tapestry of Grace teacher's manual, create customized maps and make them available for Tapestry of Grace to sell on their website to their customers. Terri thought it was a great idea, a real win-win situation, and she and Marcia agreed to undertake the project. Nine months later, both companies are excited about the product and thrilled to aid each other in their business/ministry endeavors.

MapAids Year 2, covering medieval history, was published this past April, 2005. MapAids Year 1, the ancient time period, should be ready sometime in September, 2005. Years 3 and 4 will roll out during 2006 according to the plan.
