Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 5, 12:40 PM

While the Wall Street Journal is declaring this news, it is nothing new to the Census Bureau and those that look at the data rather than listen to the news media.  Some in the media would have you imagine that there is a flood of Mexican migrants entering the United States when the recent history shows that narrative simply doesn't line up with data.  Would you have guessed that both India and China were sending more migrants to the U.S. than Mexico?  This is one of those examples where our preconceived notions interfere with actually 'getting it right.'  This is why Hans Rosling started the Ignorance Project.  So on this Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to put some Mexico-U.S. statistics in the the right light.   

       

Tags: Mexico, migration.

Blake Joseph's curator insight, Today, 8:26 PM

This statistic actually makes a lot of sense. Immigrants from Mexico, while still a high number, has been gradually dropping sense 2001 when Homeland Security and Border Patrol were beefed up after 9/11 . The exceptions are the increasing numbers during 2004 when many immigrants from Mexico were originally from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, and 2011 when many Mexicans were trying to escape the cartel violence. India and China, on the other hand, are geographically much further away than Mexico and still have more immigrants into the US. This is likely largely in part due to India and China being two of the most populated countries in the world and America's restrictions on their immigration here not being near as strict or monitored as it is with Mexico.

Teaching Geopolitics: Fantasy Football as a Learning Game - Mind/Shift

Teaching Geopolitics: Fantasy Football as a Learning Game - Mind/Shift | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

 "Digital technology made the task easy: rather than sifting through a week’s worth of newspaper clippings for the players’ standings and statistics, he could simply look online. At a glance, he saw where each player stood. Then it came to him: what if he wasn’t swapping Cutler and Brees, but China and Brazil? Just as fantasy football team owners draft, cut, and trade players based on their performance, his students could do the same with countries.

He’d replace passing yards and points per game with political crises and popular uprisings. Since he was struggling to get students interested in international developments, each country’s ability to fight its way into the news of the day would make it more valuable. Students could draft teams of countries—it didn’t matter if they were related—and compete for the newsiest cluster. Lackluster countries would quickly sink to the bottom and get traded, but if an earthquake or military coup struck, say, Indonesia, the student who was following the news most closely could snatch it up before anyone else found out. Nelson dubbed the game Fantasy Geopolitics."

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, May 5, 10:13 PM

I like this idea as a way to get our students to follow world news. If we started it with 6th graders studying world geography, perhaps they would continue following the news as they grow older. I will share this with 6th grade social studies teachers as an activity the could have ongoing throughout the year.
