Description

The next U.S. Census is fast approaching but is it ready to go?

The 2010 Census undercounted multiple communities throughout the United States. Accuracy is a big deal because Census information impacts:

  • Schools
  • Public Works
  • Boundary Lines for Representatives
  • Pubic Health Funding
  • And more!

Prince George's County was undercounted in the last census by almost 3%- which amounts to over 20,000 people! They've filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Government to ensure that ALL people are represented in the Census. But in order to solve the problem, we have to understand how it happened. Have your students wrestle with this topic as they consider the failures of the last census and perform a root cause analysis to determine the core reasons why the failures occurred!

But Who's Counting? includes:

- Teacher's Guide

- PowerPoint presentation

-Student Sheets available as Word Documents AND editable PDF

-Pre-Made Braincandy Questions (Braincandy is a FREE online platform that allows students to take polls and answer questions in real-time)
