"Occasionally we need to be reminded that the concepts of distance and area are important to the day-to-day understanding of breaking news stories, as well as many of our daily personal decisions. Although modern communications and transportation have reduced the roles of distance and area in some activities, by no means has it eliminated the utility of these concepts."

We tend to forget how easy it is to compare the sizes and distances, especially when considering the move form 3D to 2D. Something to consider when reading and interpreting maps.

Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:35 PM

A central theme of geography is place and the spacial organization of it. The USA is an extremely large area and its citizens often don't recognize this fact. Manifest destiny was a concept that stated that it was an American's duty to expand into the frontier to further the dominion of the American government. This imperialistic tendency ended when the US reached the Atlantic Ocean, but the land conquered was vast. Many countries in the world can fit many times over into the continental United States, but the citizens of the states take this fact for granted. This article serves as a needed reminder of this fact, and helps people put America's spacial consumption into perspective.

Really puts the size of countries into perspective...

What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago?

What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago? | Teaching Global 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."

Fun!

D Langen's curator insight, August 22, 2014 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.

I like this article a lot. I chose this article, because what they are saying about sexual inequality when there is a lack of education is true. This relates to the half the sky article, because in half the sky most of the women were educated at all, they we're at home because that's all they could do alone. Being educated in Least developed countries is normal, not just because some cant afford a secondary school, but because education is valued, especially education for women. Men are dominant women are not. 

Maddie Morris's curator insight, May 7, 2014 7:19 PM

This article is discussing how as inequality is growing education is going to dry up. Without women a full establishment of education can not be achieved because have of the population is not in action. This relates to the article because they both discus how women play a major part in education.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:08 AM

I curated this article, because it talks about Education. In the half the sky article, education is one of the big issues that women have associated with gender inequality. Women don't get educated, because they are simply women, this article is important because it tells people that Education is important for everybody and not men.
