Here's a PDF essay that s hows how you can create your own maps. If you're doing this, share your blog address in the comment section so that other readers can be inspired by the work you are doing. Below you can see another map created by the Tutor/Mentor Connection in the mid 1990s with text that shows how we have been trying to use maps to draw support to tutor/mentor programs in high poverty areas of Chicago. It's a strategy that can be duplicated in any city.
Here's another PDF essay, showing how you can create map stories following stories in local media that are drawing reader attention to problems caused by high poverty and too much inattention from people who don't live in poverty.
If you're a writer, artist, or YouTube creator, I encourage you to hack my articles and create your own interpretations, sharing them with me, and with your own network.
Note: Since 2011 the Tutor/Mentor Connection has been operated as a program of the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC.
