Find My Crowd is a great tool to find demographic information on any neighborhood or city in the United States. It has some unique data that I haven’t found accessible in other similar sites.
I’ve added the link to my website under Student Neighborhood Maps. You’ll find a lot of neat research tools in that section — I have to get around to writing a “The Best…” list about them. My students use them in a research project culminating in a persuasive essay about the best neighborhood. It’s a great project that I’ve written about in my upcoming book “Teaching English Language Learners: Strategies That Work” that will come out next year. I’ll try to summarize the lesson in an upcoming post.
Thanks to Interesting Pile blog for the tip on the site.
