  1. U.S. Colonialism and Government

    My teachers would use it more if there was greater alignment to the social studies common core for 4th and 5th.

  2. Charts & Graphs downloadable in other formats

    I do a lot of teacher trainings on how to use CultureGrams in the classroom. The teachers are very excited about having the ability to have their students create comparison charts and graphs. However, sharing their creations out is problematic. Would it be possible to add a feature so that charts and graphs could be downloadable in formats such as jpeg and png? CultureGrams is a statewide resources for our K-12 students, so I know this feature would be useful for many teachers and students in Iowa. Also, it would be helpful to have curriculum correlation with the Iowa Core…

  4. Highlight text with read aloud and more images in each section, make it more visually appealing

    The text should be highlighted as it reads along, More images for each topic, make it more palatable for younger and struggling readers (ENL, ELL, etc.)

  6. Any way a history class can search Jim Crow Laws by state? Please let me know if I'm missing it! Thanks!

    APUSH class will be researching Jim Crow Laws by state. I wish I could direct them to CultureGrams State Edition!

  9. FIX THE AUDIO FILES

    I have noticed some of the audio files sometimes blank out and skip that part. I think that you should fix it so then I can listen more clearly!

  10. Animals Edition

    It would be about all animals that live in the while. When you click the Animals Edition button, it would take you to a map. There would then be a exotic animals, insects, birds, warm blood, cold blood, and endangered animals buttons. For example, if you click the endangered animals button, it would take you to all the endagered animals. You click on one of them and then it would show where it is located in the world, the sound it makes, and abotu how many there are left. This would be about the same with the other animals. I…

  11. We would love for there to be citations generated for everything, like the maps, or the Did You Know? on the landing page...

    The maps and some of the information do not generate citations, so the students cannot cite the maps or the fun info on the main page.

  12. Search for countries by language

    As a teacher librarian, I promote CultureGrams to the world language teachers at my school. They often want students to do research on countries or people from countries where their target language is spoken. It would be very helpful for students to be able to search by language spoken. I think they would be surprised to see all the countries where French or Spanish is spoken.

  14. Make it easier to select countries during graph creation

    When creating a table, countries and attributes can be selected and de-selected using check boxes. When creating a graph, students have to use control-click to select choices. This is a real nuisance for kids using touch screens, and a stumbling block for everyone else. Can all country and attribute selection be made with check boxes? Thanks!

  17. Chinese Divisions(provinces, special administrative regions, municipalities, and autonomous regions) Edition

    It would be great if you had a Chinese Provinces edition, similar to the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces editions you already offer especially since China is a large and diverse part of today's world.

    We are in the process of updating our economics portion of the reports. The planned changes should address the suggestion proposed here.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts about how to improve CultureGrams.

  19. Holidays and Celebrations around the World

    It would be nice to have a section on holidays and celebrations around the world, and maybe even sorted out by month. This way they would be easy to compare instead of going country by country

  20. Make a topic filter for countries

    A feature where you can filter topics when searching for countries (ex: Religion, Art, Economy, History, etc.) This would make it easier to find articles about countries and to find specific articles about certain topics about that country.
