There are only a few maps in AHL. There isn't an official answer key, but there are the materials that the student uses -- a page or two of info in the Welch map book, the Historical Atlas that's included in the set, and the extra hints in the AHL manual for the hard ones. I didn't have a problem knowing whether most of the assignments were correct. When I'm not sure, I ask on MFW boards
There was one spot on the first map that I had trouble with. We talked about it over on another board & Crystal's daughter explained that she knew the general area, and wrote it where there was the most space. That worked for us.
However, I also sent off a question to the publisher. (I can be annoying about details
) He was kind enough to investigate and reply. However, he didn't seem as detail oriented as I tend to be
. Here is what he said. I concluded that my one detail doesn't seem to be crucial to giving a good grade.
- I forwarded your concern to our Vice President of Education, and she advised closely following the information within the Background Sources and Teacher Background pages. Within the To The Teacher page, the author points out the "commentary" about the maps is designed to be a reference. It was also suggested that an Atlas, maps and resource books and magazines may be helpful to use this book, the author does list several books as reference material.
So far, I've just had that one question. The rest I either recognized or could look up easily in the included resources (AHL manual, Welch mapping info, Historical Atlas).
Does that help?
