Election 2012: Teaching Ideas and Resources

Election 2012: Teaching Ideas and Resources | CLIL-DNL History | Scoop.it

We suggested ways to teach about Election 2012 and included links to lesson plans and Times features, and we'll be updating the page regularly as the march to the White House proceeds.

 

The Learning Network has partnered with the NY Times to produce lesson plans for all ages (and all disciplines) on how to teach using the 2012 United States Presidential Election.

Fifty years ago, J.T. Johnson and Al Lingo jumped into a whites-only pool in Florida as part of a civil rights protest. They were taken to jail — after the hotel owner poured acid into the water.

Stephen Zimmett's curator insight, March 4, 1:54 PM

Seth Dixon has it right. 

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 26, 4:01 PM

The parameters of the measure of the economy are so broad that the numbers don't really mean anything. Each country counts different things. The GDP of the US cannot be compared to the GDP of other countries because the cost of living in each place is so wildly different. When compared to Japan our economies are close but compared to any country in Africa they are completely different. Measurement of the economy is not an overly useful number.

Excellent site... though we don;t study pirates I'm sure I'd have some kids that would love to be extended by looking at this!

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 11, 1:54 PM

Pirates were real in this specific time period. But lets just say they were no the type we think of today that Blockbusters glorify. These types of pirates would have beeen working to discover treasures from the Tierra Firme trade line. The point of origin for the South American 'Tierra Firme' Treasure Fleets, ran from Portobelo (Panama) to the Orinoco Delta.

Jess Deady's curator insight, April 17, 10:27 AM

This is a fun exercise than can be used in many classrooms. I like being able to scroll through and zoom into what maps what I want to look at. Also, children love pirates (or most of them anyway) and this would be a great map to bring into their worlds.

India and Pakistan Reunited

"It’s rare that a video from a brand will spark any real emotion--but a new spot from Google India is so powerful, and so honest to the product, that it’s a testament not only to the deft touch of the ad team that put it together, but to the strength of Google’s current offering."--Forbes

Marissa Roy's curator insight, December 2, 2013 4:46 PM

I watched this short commercial with my geography class. While watching, you could almost forget that it was only a commercial. The commercial brings up that the internet can be a great tool in finding information. It also shows that the internet breaks down boundaries that had been impossible to get over physically.

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, April 11, 3:59 AM

These ads reflect the changing culture of India. There is a more progressive culture taking hold which is quite possibly caused by the effects of globalization. Along with India's industrialization, technology is a factor in the culture change. Taboo topics, like remarriage and the partition with Pakistan, are being used by advertisers be provocative without being offensive to most people.

 

The culture of India will undoubtedly be affected by its media representing more progressive ideas as well. Repeated exposure to these ideas will create new generations of Indians more comfortable with remarriage, much like newer generations in the United States are more comfortable with gay marriage.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 9:21 PM

Commercials work even when they don't. When its an annoying commercial, everyone still remembers exactly what the commercial is for. What Google does here is brilliant. This is very powerful and the reunited states could be an idea to get used to.

In this I saw that when choosing Russia to look at in relation to its relationship with the United States throughtout the years it has both increased and decreased. For example, In 2008 the percentage of relationship with the US and Russia was at 29% then in  2009 it decreased to 27% and then fianlly increasing in 2013 to 31%. As you can see the US and Russia are partners in life today to some extend and have evolved from time to time( past to present).

Colonization and Independence in Africa | Brown University

Colonization and Independence in Africa | Brown University | CLIL-DNL History | Scoop.it

In the late nineteenth century, Europe's great powers claimed the African continent for themselves. In the guise of a humanitarian mission, European leaders and businesses exploited African natural resources and people to fuel European economic growth. Africans did not submit to outside control willingly. In fact, African resistance continued throughout the colonial period, culminating in the independence movements of the mid-twentieth century.

Africa is a vast continent—more than three times the size of the United States—with more than 50 countries and thousands of ethnic groups and societies. African experiences of colonialism were diverse. Nevertheless, there are common themes within the continent's colonial history and its legacies. Colonization and Independence in Africa explores these themes generally, as well as specifically through four country case studies: Ghana, Algeria, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The readings and activities help students consider the perspectives of Africans and the ways in which they responded to European colonialism.

How the British (literally) Landscaped the World

I've written in the past about the aesthetics of the an ideal British landscape (as embodied in the anthem Jerusalem).  The British ideal was to tame nature; the Canadians on the other hand, embraced the wildness of the natural landscapeThose difference normative views of landscape helped to shape national identity and inform land use decision-making processes.     

megan b clement's comment, December 16, 2013 1:33 AM
This article talks about how the British are the ones who shaped landscaping for the rest of the world. Growing grass in places where grass didnt grow or cute park benches. The pictures of the Bristish landscape were all lush and beautiful. I never knew where the idea of lanscaping had come from.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 30, 2013 10:54 AM

It's amazing how sarcasm (be it Oatmeal, xkcd or the Onion) can effectively convey important geopolitic subtexts.  What merits 'international outrage?'  What doesn't?  Why not?  If you don't see this newly-discovered outrage to be hypocritical how come?  


This make be think of Weber's definition of 'the state.'  Max Weber defined the state as the "entity which upholds the claim to the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force in the enforcement of its order."  All the other countries are perfectly fine with the Syrian government killing Syrians and doing nothing about it because, among the club of states, that historically has been the perogative of the state.  Chemical weapons, however, are banned by international treaties and now the international community sees something worth stopping.  I'm not saying that this is how it should be; I'm just trying to explain what is as I see it.
