Annotated Maps of Influence

By , February 27, 2017 1:15 pm



Start by  choosing the two relationships you want to explain. You will make a separate map for each relationship.

Next, select the primary source excerpts you want for each relationship (in total you will end up with 4 quotes).

Next, if I were you, I’d write the annotations (4). Each one should start with a carefully selected quote that represents that society’s perspective on the relationship. (i.e., the Japanese had a very different perspective on the effect of the Portuguese on Japan than did the Portuguese). No, the quote doesn’t count as part of the 100 words. Label the title of the quote in brackets. After the quote, you get 100 words to write your explanation of that perspective on the relationship. In that explanation, you will explain the lines (see below).

Lastly, I’d create the lines and the legend that describes them.  You have four lines for each relationship: influence of A on B, influence of B on A, degree of cooperation, degree of conflict. You may have 100 words each to describe each line.

Show creativity by designing your lines: colour, width, symbols, dashed or broken lines. You can even use symbols to represent the countries.

To check word limit, type on Word first and then insert in My Maps or whatever tool or paper you’re using.
