Defining 'the South'

Defining 'the South' | BYOT | Scoop.it

"The Southerners were considerably more certain of which states are their own. While the top few Midwest states barely pulled 80 percent of the vote, nearly 90 percent of respondents identified Georgia and Alabama as Southern, and more than 80 percent placed Mississippi and Louisiana in the South. South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina all garnered above 60 percent."

So what states do you consider the South?  As a life-long Southerner I know which of these states that I consider to be in the South.  I also know that if I were to move to a non-Southern state I would still consider myself a Southern but I would be living in another region.

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 28, 11:56 PM

The South looks different to each state. I've heard some base it off of the accents and some even base it off of BBQ. its funny to see which states consider other states to be part of "The South" and which ines they dont.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 15, 12:22 PM

When I think about the South, I do so in terms of culture. The "southern life style" that I have is extremely warped by being a resident of New England for so long. But when I consider what the South is I usually include the south eastern states until the top portion of Florida. As well as Virginia, Oklahoma, Kansas, and North Eastern Texas. Although Texas seems like it would be the quintessential example of the South, much of the state has a Latin influence that I do not associate with Southern culture.

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century

News Literacy: Critical-Thinking Skills for the 21st Century | BYOT | Scoop.it

"Every teacher I've worked with over the last five years recalls two kinds of digital experiences with students.The first I think of as digital native moments, when a student uses a piece of technology with almost eerie intuitiveness. The second I call digital naiveté moments, when a student trusts a source of information that is obviously unreliable. How can these coexist? How can students be so technologically savvy while also displaying their lack of basic skills for navigating the digital world?"

This is a nice article with some practical advice but it also can that helps us conceptualize the thinking skills that our students are going to need in the future (with a classic photo that embodies 20th century news literacy).  Previously, I've written on this same topic, with some strategies to how to help students assess the validity of online information with geographic content (with a series of maps and images).  I know I've been duped before, and it's okay to admit that to your students; but we need to teach students how to be critical readers as they are swimming in an ocean of digital information of variable quality.  This is why I see content curation as an important part of modern education; it is a way to teach student the tools to assess the quality of information for themselves.  They will be gathering, organizing and synthesizing digital information for rest of their lives.

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought | BYOT | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago, we shared 11 sample BYOT policies http://bit.ly/19pF4WW to help you create your own.

 

Unlike some learning tools, BYOT resources have to be diverse because of the inherently flexible nature of BYOT. What works for one school or district may not for another.

 

Another challenge for educators looking for BYOT “stuff” is that what you’re finding is likely scattered all over the internet. Which makes the handbook of BYOT “stuff” that convergemag.com created (and grabonlee is hosting) all the more helpful. In it you’ll find 10 checklists for creating–or simply checking–your BYOT plan, covering the following topics."

Potatoes were very important in the Colombian Exchange, which was the exchange of plants and animals to and from different lands where they are not native to.  Today, the potato is the fifth most important crop in the world.  Food is deeply routed in culture and this massive exchange changed societies.

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 28, 11:41 PM

Potatoes were brought to the New World through the Columbian Exchange. It does have a negative connotation but the trade route was used to diffuse cultures by trading food.
