#Writeout: Old Maps Uncover Stories

Maps of the Armory collage

Spending time at the Springfield Armory Historic Site immerses you in many maps. They are all over the place, helping to tell the story of the Armory over the course of time. Our writing project has a strong partnership with the Armory, where we have run professional development for teachers and summer camps for urban middle school students.

The collage above is some of the maps on display, and below is a poem I wrote about maps.

This is for Write Out, an open learning project sponsored by the partnership between the National Writing Project and the National Park Service.

Peace (outside the grid),
