"Drive Safely" sign for National Safety Month

How Teens Can Avoid High-Risk Accidents

In 1996, the National Safety Council dedicated the month of June as National Safety Month to create awareness of occupational hazards and preventable injuries that can lead to death. This National Safety Month lets us look beyond the workplace. While most teens don’t face workplace accidents on a regular basis, they’re at increased risk for another kind of accident: fatal car crashes. Teens look forward to getting a driver’s permit—their first step toward a full driver’s license and the independence that comes with driving. However, our brains continue developing into our mid-to-late 20s, and the prefrontal cortex, associated with planning and decision-making, matures later than other parts. This means the excitement of this newfound freedom can cloud a teen’s decision-making skills when it comes to driving safely. Motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death among teens in the United States in 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the same year, as covered in Accident and Safety Information for Teens, Third Edition, the CDC reported that approximately 2,800 teens aged 13 to 19 died, and 227,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes. Fatality Facts 2020, a report by the Insurance Institute for Highway

Quebec Separatism: A Historical Controversy from Issues & Controversies in History

Should the province of Quebec secede from Canada and become a sovereign nation? Be sure to check out Issues & Controversies in History’s complete and unbiased coverage of this issue. Learn more about the issue and check out a sample of the pro/con arguments on both sides below. THE ISSUE By 1700, longtime rivals Great Britain and France had both colonized large areas of North America. British victory in the French and Indian War in 1763 gave Britain possession of New France and its French-speaking population in Canada, which came to be centered in what is today the province of Quebec. After Canada became an independent nation in 1867, English speakers dominated cultural and political life. Many French-speaking Canadians came to believe that Quebec should separate from the rest of Canada and form its own nation. In 1980 and 1995, Quebec held referendums on the issue. Should Quebec secede from Canada and form a separate nation? Or should Quebec maintain its status within Canada even though its French culture sets it apart from the rest of the country? Issues & Controversies in History links this pro/con article to rich related resources that enhance the debate. Students and researchers can delve
