Description

I use this ready-to-go lesson as a larger part of a middle or high school social studies lesson on diversity. Using data compiled by the 2010 United States Census and The New York Times, you and your students can look more closely at the neighborhoods of New York City to see how they're changing. Which neighborhood is the most diverse? Which neighborhood is the least diverse? Which areas have the highest concentration of ethnic minorities? How have ethnic communities in the city, including Dominican, Puerto Rican, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Indian and others grown or declined?
