"The reasons why teachers leave the profession and following other careers have continually been the focus for research, but very little follow up research has explored the career paths teachers follow once they quit the profession."

The 11 American nations, in one map

The 11 American nations, in one map | Educated | Scoop.it

Red states and blue states? Flyover country and the coasts? How simplistic. Colin Woodard, a reporter at the Portland Press Herald and author of several books, says North America can be broken neatly into 11 separate nation-states, where dominant cultures explain our voting behaviors and attitudes toward everything from social issues to the role of government.

“The borders of my eleven American nations are reflected in many different types of maps — including maps showing the distribution of linguistic dialects, the spread of cultural artifacts, the prevalence of different religious denominations, and the county-by-county breakdown of voting in virtually every hotly contested presidential race in our history,” Woodard writes in the Fall 2013 issue of Tufts University’s alumni magazine. “Our continent’s famed mobility has been reinforcing, not dissolving, regional differences, as people increasingly sort themselves into like-minded communities.”

Take a look at his map.

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 7:41 AM

Even though I dont believe in this exact map, thi article has gotten me to thinking. With how many problems we are having with getting things done/ deceding on a way to go about things maybe it would be better to split the nation up. For example the need for gun control in a state like New York is completly different than the need for it in Texas. This split up could help define laws that are better suited for regions of the country. 

Paige Therien's curator insight, February 3, 10:34 AM

This is an example of one person's opinion on how North America is actually divided.  However, everyone has their own opinions on this subject because they are shaped by our exposure, experience, and perspective.  As stated in this article, and many like it, we tend to organize ourselves in terms of culture, beliefs, and mindset.  When thinking like this, official borders do not matter.  With accesible internet and transportation, these divisions become more fluid and dynamic.  In the United States, we work with and embrace these divisions.  In some parts of the world, politics prove as an unwanted unifier;  the people of former Yugoslavia had divisions rooted too deeply in hearts and history to come together as a nation.
