Photos like this that juxtapose the original photograph to present day surroundings always grab me.  What an interesting discussion this could be in a history classroom!

The Euro Area, Home Ownership And Unemployment

The Euro Area, Home Ownership And Unemployment | World History | Scoop.it

Andrew Watt recently published a comment entitled Detroit, Migration And Optimal Currency Areas here at the Social Europe Journal. I would like to complement his analysis.

In 1996, Andrew Oswalt first raised the idea that there is a possible link between high homeownership and high unemployment. Along with David Branchflower, Oswalt found in May of this year that (among other factors) higher homeownership reduces labour mobility, which has an adverse impact on employment. A related recent working paper by Jani-Petri Laamanen contains a useful summary of the literature. These two news articles also nicely summarize the possible

So many uses!

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:56 AM

What an awesome map! A great resource for teaching kids history- and making it simple to understand, as well as interactive. Can be used in conjunction with the 'Protest Sites' map I scooped above; in a unit on protests and change around the world. 

 

I think it links to most areas of Humanities, which is cool. I showed it to some of the kids from placement and they loved it!

Great Quick tool to use and very informative.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:25 PM

This video is a classic cultural production that is filled with unintented comedy for today's youth (and adults--I laughed plenty).  It does chronicle the some of the popular culture interactions among youth in that day and dating practices.  It also is a normative production designed to show how things should be within society.  This normative element of earlier TV products (like Leave it to Beaver and Father knows Best) means that they aren't prefect reflections of the society that produced them, but represent an idealized form that many believed should be the aspirational goals of society.

The making of Americans: Immigration

The making of Americans: Immigration | World History | Scoop.it
The "melting pot" has been glorified, vilified, and dismissed as obsolete. But both census data and the stories of millions of individual immigrants indicate that the not-always-easy process of assimilation is alive and well.

Al Picozzi's curator insight, July 12, 2013 3:00 PM

It is a melting pot.  It get less and less of the older immigrations, Irish, Italian and other, but newer immigrants add to this melting pot.  I once read someone said that their grandparents were Italian-Italian immigrants, they they were Italian-American, that their kids are American-Italian and thayt their grandkids will be American-American, the pot might get dilluted every so often, but someone will always add to it.
