American Rites of Passages Make Other Cultures Look Soft – Beer... | Sociology | Scoop.it
The concept of the “Rite of Passage” is seen in all cultures. It’s a universal mark indicative of transitioning from adolescence to adulthood in order to be accepted in a social group. From Aborigines in Australia to New York, rite of passage is used to separate the men from the boys...

Is Gender a social construct?  In this video, I attempt to explain both sides to the gender question- Who should we be protecting in our public restrooms?  Is Target the hero, or North Carolina?  Perhaps you can find it useful for stimulating thought, or jump-starting a debate in your classrooms. 

I feel, in the context of today's news, that some of you may find this relevant, perhaps after the AP Human Geography Exams.

The effects of globalization and technologies are uneven; this is a very clear example of how mobility and access to other places can be limited based on various segments of the population. It is repugnant to think that such a book was ever necessary in this country, but it is heartening to see the evidence of an organized network that worked to lessen the pain of those oppressed by it (podcast on the Green Book and an additional article).     

Geographer Derek Alderman complied these resources for teachers wanting to use the example of the Green Book in their classrooms.

Back in the day when one travelled while being black there were restrictions in many places. There also were places where one could not stay , and places where you would not be safe.

The confederate flag was a marker , most of the time to let you know that you were not welcome. Of course there were restrictions on busses, trains, and in some cities you had to take a black cab.

 

Lots of people belonged to social clubs , sororities, fraternities and those memberships encouraged people to invite guests into their homes. Many of us did the relatives map. ie. traveled to where family lived. It was magic to be able to go to places in New York, Philadelphia and Boston.,Still you needed to know little things.

The Failure of Multiculturalism

Multicultural policies accept that societies are diverse, yet they implicitly assume that such diversity ends at the edges of minority communities. By forcing people into ethnic and cultural boxes, they help create the very divisions they were meant to manage.

Stereotypes against mothers insinuate mothers are incompetent and are less committed to their careers. Research shows that a pay gap exists between mothers and childless women that's even larger than the pay gap between women and men due to mistaken beliefs about mother's capabilities.

Male-biased tweeting | Sociology | Scoop.it
Today women take an active part in public life. Without a doubt, they also converse with other women. In fact, they even talk to each other about other things besides men. As banal as it sounds, this is far from being the norm in Hollywood movies. The same goes for Twitter, as a new study shows.

Perspectives of gun rights and public safety are highly divided.  Part of those divisions are ideological, but there are also big differences between urban and rural America.  This map of the NRA's "report card" on the legislators of Congress shows some pretty powerful spatial patterns.  This interactive map of people how have been shot this year shows a decidedly differnt pattern that the first. 

 

Questions to Ponder: How do most people feel about the second amendment where you live?  What about your local geography might influence those opinions?
