The eighth-grade curriculum guide has been designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of urban life and growth throughout the world, emphasizing the metropolitan area of New York City. Concepts from history, economics, geography, political science, sociology, and anthropology are developed through four "themes": (1) a case study of the New York Metropolitan area, (2) the urbanization in New York State, (3) urbanization at home and abroad, and (4) the changing nature of federalism in urban America, with emphasis on the relationships among the cities, states, and national government. Instructional materials include a content outline and bibliography for each theme, suggested learning activities and teaching approaches, photographs, cartoons, maps, and excerpts from newspapers and books.
