Experiement in learning styles with alternative to memorized map quiz

As an alternative to the weekly map quiz, which is a quick check on your memorization, try this: an Artful Map in which the color and extra details demonstrate the learning. It is called portfolio style evaluation.

To get full credit please hit these benchmarks:
- colored borders around nations
- colored border around the map (see above)
- imaginative title
- illustration (ship or castle, etc) and compass rose
- neatness
- principal cities, neatly identified
- bodies of water, too.
- check spelling!

Thanks to Heather Hasson for an excellent example of this alternative.
