Distressed Communities Index - Interactive map
From the web site: "How did the Great Recession from 2007-2011 and subsequent recovery affect the health and trajectories of American communities? And how have the rewards of a long national expansion been distributed in local terms across different places and populations?

To find out, EIG used its Distressed Communities Index (DCI) to compare two distinct time periods: 2007-2011 and 2012-2016. The DCI combines seven complementary metrics into a single measure of economic well-being, resulting in a clear snapshot of the economic and social state of the U.S. zip codes, counties, cities, and congressional districts. Places are sorted into quintiles based on their performance on the index: Prosperous, comfortable, mid-tier, at risk, and distressed."

Unfortunately, many United States cities and counties have significant gaps in life expectancy, often for residents just a few miles apart. Explore how life expectancy in America compares with life expectancy in your area, and resources to help illuminate these disparities and enable everyone to have the opportunity to live a healthier life."

Dream Hoarders, by Richard V. Reeves
Full title: Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do about It

From the web site: "Reeves shows, the growing separation between the upper middle class and everyone else can be seen in family structure, neighborhoods, attitudes, and lifestyle. Those at the top of the income ladder are becoming more effective at passing on their status to their children, reducing overall social mobility. The result is a fracturing of American society along class lines, not just an economic divide. Upper-middle-class children become upper-middle-class adults."

Ed Tech and the circus of unreason - how to respond post 2016 America
This article contains many links to other articles that reflect on a 2017 America with Donald Trump as President. While it invites educators to reflect on their roles, and the ways they interact, it really is an invitation to anyone concerned with the future of civil liberties, democracy, the environment, etc. The article is linked to an annotation tool called Hypothes.is, which enabled anyone to add their own comments and join the discussion. That's one of the reasons I've posted it to this section of the Tutor/Mentor web library.

Each circle on the map is a high school with at least 150 students, and the size and color of the circle give information about the average college-readiness scores at this school.

Education and Learning Ideas from a middle school teacher
This blog is written by Sheri Edwards, a middle school teacher from Washington State whom I've met through on-line cMOOCs in the years since 2013. In her introduction she writes "It’s impossible to imagine what will be in the next few years because of the frequent advances and changes in technology, but I do know that my students needed me to be informed and engaged, leading with the educational transformation occurring right now. For them to be successful, they need guidance in the tools they choose to use. Hopefully, schools will allow those tools in the classroom so that all educators can “bring instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.”. Subscribe to the blog and follow her ideas and you'll open yourself to a network of innovative thinkers.

Educators Guide to Teaching History US Slavery using GIS maps
While this link points to a section titled The Slave Trail the section is part of a larger teaching guide titled In Time & Place.

From the site: "In Time & Place is a growing library of teaching materials for classroom, distance, or home use focusing on selected topics in American history. You will find many traditional reading, map, and photo related resources, but you will also find GIS (Geographic Information System) data and activities as well. All of the materials can be used individually or as a whole to build a unit on each topic in a way that best suits your and your students' needs. There are suggestions in some cases that the materials are well suited to group work or jigsaw type sharing activities. But these are not pre-packaged lessons; rather collections of resources that you can adapt to your style and specific classroom needs."
