Teaching About Life in the City.
Wisniewski, Richard, Ed.
The purpose of this yearbook is to examine key aspects of American urban society, to identify issues that are central to all social studies instruction about the city, and to present specific ideas on how teachers can teach about these issues both inside and outside the classroom. Fifteen social scientists and educators contributed articles to the book, centering on the theme: What can social science educators do to involve schools, students and the community in actively participating in efforts to overcome urban problems? The book is divided into three sections: part one discusses problems involving the search for identity in the city; part two focuses on approaches, methods, and materials for teaching about life in the city; and the last section presents some possibilities for the future, both for the urban dwellers and social studies teachers. The yearbook ends with an appendix entitled: The Child in the Urban Environment: A Review of Literature and Research. (FDI)
