The new literature collection is the seventh geoinquiry collection supporting the mainstream use of ArcGIS Online in schools.  Each collection contains 15 content-focused activities. Each activity is based on national curriculum standards, tied to key instructional books, and uses inquiry instruction to teach disciplinary content with ArcGIS Online.  All activities and maps are free and licensed under Creative Commons for easy teacher modification.  Learn more at http://esri.com/geoinquiries

This collection is so exciting because it not only supports the study of American Literature but also geography, the sciences and so much more! Thanks so much for your support of using online mapping across the curriculum!
