What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago?

What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago? | Mr. D's AP US History | Scoop.it

"From the scrunchies and jean jackets that dominated the 1980s to the plaid shirts and heavy boots that defined 1990s grunge, everyone has their favorite teenage fashion trend. But what would we have worn if we were flower children of the 1970s or flappers of the 1920s? Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub was able to paint a picture by depicting each decade's quintessential mainstream and counterculture looks. Using herself as a model and tinting each picture to realistically reflect the technology of the decade, Hartlaub's "Counter // Culture" photo project catalogs nearly 100 years of fashion history from 1920 through today."

D Langen's curator insight, August 22, 10:46 AM

Here is a great photo study to use when teaching counterculture. Students often have difficulty seeing persons in other eras as anything but "foreign". This photo study may also help students convey a sense of familiarity across time and social groups.

The article in itself is interesting, bu the links to five different maps of diversity could be the start of some fascinating classroom discussions.  

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, June 3, 1:09 PM

For students:

 

What factors do you think should be considered when interpreting the map of racial diversity above? What conclusion can you draw when you compare the map above to this map of population density in the U.S. (linked below)?

1930s fashion History - The result of World Functions upon Design and style Trends in the 1930's

The stock exchange crash connected with 1929 damaged in excess of bank company accounts. The ensuing Great Depression threw the world into a period of change that showed up at the dinner table and at fashion shows.Where a few short years before, the Roaring 20's was a time of wild exuberance, fashion trends of the 1930's followed the economy toward a new austerity that ruled fashion designs for the next 20 years.

The Best Map Ever Made of America's Racial Segregation

The Best Map Ever Made of America's Racial Segregation | Mr. D's AP US History | Scoop.it
Drawing on data from the 2010 U.S. Census, the map shows one dot per person, color-coded by race. That's 308,745,538 dots in all.

 

White: blue dots; African American: green dots; Asian: red; Latino: orange; all others: brown

Last year, a pair of researchers from Duke University published a report with a bold title: “The End of the Segregated Century.” U.S. cities, the authors concluded, were less segregated in 2012 than they had been at any point since 1910. But less segregated does not necessarily mean integrated–something this incredible map makes clear in vivd color.

The map, created by Dustin Cable at University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, is stunningly comprehensive. Drawing on data from the 2010 U.S. Census, it shows one dot per person, color-coded by race. That’s 308,745,538 dots in all–around 7 GB of visual data. It isn’t the first map to show the country’s ethnic distribution, nor is it the first to show every single citizen, but it is the first to do both, making it the most comprehensive map of race in America ever created.

Whitney Souery's curator insight, May 28, 6:41 PM

We can use maps to think spatially,make connections, and find patterns. Maps can also be used as a way to compare change over time, as in this particular case where maps from the present were compared with maps from over fifty years ago when racial segregation was plainly obvious. Now, however, when we compare past maps with those of the present, the change over time factor becomes clearly evident, revealing why maps are so useful in determining continuities or changes.

What medieval Europe did with its teenagers

What medieval Europe did with its teenagers | Mr. D's AP US History | Scoop.it

"Today, there's often a perception that Asian children are given a hard time by their parents. But a few hundred years ago northern Europe took a particularly harsh line, sending children away to live and work in someone else's home. Not surprisingly, the children didn't always like it."

Young folks today may be surprised to learn that, had they been born a few hundred years ago in Medieval Europe, they might well be working for another family through their teenaged years.
