Deschool Primer Number 3. Your City Has Been Kidnapped.
Jones, W. Ron, Ed.
This book originated as a series of wall placards proposing ways for children and adults in the San Francisco Bay Area to investigate their city environment. These placards, placed on street corners, factory walls, and school corridors, encouraged the passer-by to contribute comments and suggest new ways for seeing their city. A few of the projects suggested were: try to dramatize or mime jaywalkers, hitchhikers, a subway rush hour, cars trying to get on the freeway; try moving and feeling like your favorite building; try talking with people you normally ignore; find out who owns the buildings in your neighborhood.
