Interdependence in an Urban Setting. (Second Annual Report). Project Canada West.
Western Curriculum Project on Canada Studies, Edmonton (Alberta).
The intent of this curriculum project is to help students focus attention on the interdependent relationships that exist in an urban center. In this progress report (see ED 066 351), the second year's work is outlined. Four teachers each designed a unit of study which are presented here, stating objectives, content, and activities. Unit 1, Nuclear Group Interdependence, is a study of the family (the student's own and those from various cultures); Unit 2, Neighborhood Interdependence, is an identification of the way of living in a local neighborhood in relationship to the way of living throughout the city; Unit 3, Interdependence in Urban Communities, examines the interdependence of all groups of people in a city in creating one productive unit; and Unit 4, Regional Interdependence, studies the relationship of cities and rural areas and their creation of one productive Canadian society. The personnel, time schedules, work assignments, and contributions are reported in Section 3, along with acknowledgement of contributions from and consultations with outside sources. The advantages of teacher involvement in curriculum development is cited. Year III plans call for pilot programs, continuous evaluation, involvement of additional teachers, and the production of a teacher's manual. (JMB)
