Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss the concept mapping strategies we used to review and assess 6th grade middle school students’ knowledge of a human geography curriculum. We report findings from spring 2010 and spring 2011 assessments and revisions to the curriculum in summer 2010. Concept mapping strategies used in the after school program included student-generated concept maps, the use of gaming to facilitate concept map creation, cooperatively-made concept maps, and student interviews.
