Project Canada West. The Factors Affecting the Structural Growth of a City.
Western Curriculum Project on Canada Studies, Edmonton (Alberta).
This project examined the development of the physical structure of a city in preparation for the designing of a unit of study on Urbanization for grades five through twelve. The rationale is focused on the effect physical structure has on the processes and functions of urban life. Recognizing the need for a method or process to examine city forms, the study of urban geography in conjunction with other social sciences was utilized. The concepts of urban geography and its relationship to anthropology, sociology, economics, history, political science, social psychology, and geography provide background for the approach to the topic. Concepts of each discipline are listed to present a suggested framework of objectives. General objectives and criteria are briefly recounted, but final selection of concepts are left for the 1971-72 developmental phase of the curriculum. A case study of the city of Saskatoon provides a primary illustrative model for development of curriculum design. Related documents are ED 055 011-020. (JMB)
