Product Description

Many students have a hard time grasping the intuition of hemispheres and latitude / longitude. And with good reason: true understanding requires deep spatial intuition, distinguishing between parallel lines of latitude and non-parallel lines of longitude, grasping that lines of latitude run east-west but measure the distance north and south from the equator (and the opposite for lines of latitude), and more.

These 11 x 17 posters were designed by a veteran world geo teacher who got frustrated with available resources and decided to create his own. These four posters carefully and systematically walk students through why we need lat and long and how they work. They work well as hand-outs AND easy to print wall posters.

Do they work? Well, during state-wide testing review the designer was working with two students who had been struggling with lat and long all year. He handed them print outs of the posters, stood back, and watched. It took a few minutes but soon their faces lit up --they had gotten it. And without a word of support from the teacher.

Helms Bilingual Education posters are designed to be printed on 11 x 17 paper (it costs about 58 cents at a local copy shop --even in color-- or you can just do it for free at school) and can be laminated or used as is.

If your experience is like mine, you will find yourself constantly using the posters to explain concepts and frequently seeing students get up and go at look at them to clarify something for themselves.

Clip art used in these posters is also available from Teach-and-Learn Social Studies.

THIS PRODUCT ALSO AVAILABLE IN SPANISH. DESIGNED FOR GEOGRAPHY, WORLD GEOGRAPHY, CULTURAL STUDIES, INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE, AND SIMILAR CLASSROOMS!
