A 2-D map is a great guide here on Earth—and virtually worthless for finding your way around in outer space. Take a 3-D look at mapping our solar system and universe. This Moveable Museum article, available as a printable PDF file, looks at how astronomers use data to create 3-D models of the universe. Explore these concepts further using the recommended resources mentioned in this reading selection.

0.0 stars

The Center's Annotated List of Suggested Visual Arts currently contains 16 works of art which we have annotated to show how they might be used to teach the rule of law. After each entry you will find a link or links to the image and other useful information to use with your classes. (Please note that some of these links may have expiration limits unknown to us that will require teachers to conduct their own search for the image.) In some cases we have suggested pairings of works based on common rule of law-related themes. We also encourage you to use the REED-LO Scaffolding Approach to Art (http://www.ruleoflaw-vba.org/uploads/1/5/7/7/15777460/rol_project_site_-_reedlo_1.pdf) and the REED-LO Matrix templates (https://www.thecenterforruleoflaw.org/uploads/1/5/7/7/15777460/reed-lo_matrix.pdf) to create your own lesson plans for these works. If you create your own lesson plans and wish to share them with us, we will add them to the site with full attribution to you as developer of the plan.

While the heyday of the canals lasted only a few decades, they transformed the American economy by connecting the areas west of the Appalachian Mountains to eastern population centers and Atlantic ports. Concentrated largely north of the Mason-Dixon line, they shaped American regionalism too by linking the northeast and northwest together into a region that increasingly came to see itself as the "North."

“Can’t You Line It?” is a work song created by African American men who built railroads across the South (many in prison work gangs). Such songs provided the rhythm for a group to move together in the critical work of aligning the railroad track. This 1935 performance by A.B. Hicks was recorded in Florida by Alan Lomax, Zora Neale Hurston and Mary Elizabeth Barnicle. It forms part of the Library of Congress’s Archive of American Folk Song.

Digital Images: The Universe Exposed!

0.0 stars

For most of human history, recording a star meant describing it with words or drawing a picture. The 19th-century invention of photography changed that—only to be revolutionized by digital imaging. This Moveable Museum article, available as a six-page printable PDF file, takes a look at the technology of digital imaging. It discusses how digital images are pictures stored as numbers and explains how computer manipulation can enhance images and reduce distortion. Some suggested resources are provided for further research.
