StoryMap Collections

As a part of creating new and better tools for educators, the DCWNY Team has also created Collections of StoryMaps with the GeoInquiry and corresponding map. There are two versions, a teacher and student, that can be used. The instructions for the GeoInquiry have been updated to function with the current Map Viewer in ArcGIS Online.
