Faulkner, Brenda F.
This general social studies course for grades 7-9 is an introduction to urban life: its history, the attraction of the city, its growth, advantages and problems. The condition of cities in America today is examined for the purpose of understanding the causes of their present condition and the steps that can be taken to save them. The goal of the course is to make students aware of urban development and problems in order that they may better understand and intelligently deal with the urban complexities. Learning activities are designed to guide the student toward an understanding of why and how cities develop and grow, the examination of problems that develop in large cities, and an understanding of the need for city planning and urban renewal. A special project, the design of plans for future cities, is suggested as the culminating unit activity. A student/teacher bibliography includes textual and audiovisual materials to support the study of changing cities. (Author/SHM)
