Making Learning Visible 2004: A Map of Our Work

Here we include three versions of a Making Learning Visible Map that we created at the beginning of 2004 in order to reflect the work of the 2003-05 MLV Seminar members to date. The actual map was comprised of three 30" x 40" black foam core panels.

The main purpose of the map was to help seminar members locate themselves in the work of the group. Once members had placed themselves and their primary inquiry questions on the map, we would return to the map at subsequent seminars, adding new insights, stories, or questions that arose from work in the classrooms and schools. Members could also change their original questions or locations.

The first version of the MLV Map takes the form of a celestial map with seven constellations of questions and ideas that arose during the first half of the seminar.

The second version repeats the same information as the first in the form of a bulleted list.

The third version expands in slightly greater detail on what we mean by the headings and phrases in each cluster.
