Measure of America Website

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day blog, I was able to find this website that I think many family and consumer sciences teachers will be able to use in their classes. The Measure of America is the name of the American Human Development's website. One of the most interesting things on the website is the interactive maps that highlight how the various United States rate in over sixty categories, including health, education, income, etc.

FCS teachers can use this site in discussions on health issues such as diabetes, obesity and teen pregnancy. In education, maps are available showing items such as teacher salaries, child care subsidies, and SAT scores. In income, students can see how states compare in items such as poverty rate and state minimum wage.

This could be a useful resource for student presentations, and perhaps could be integrated into STAR Event presentations.
