Parkway School District, Chesterfield, MO.; Missouri State Dept. of Education, Jefferson City.
This unit, focusing on transportation, is designed to be utilized with junior high school students as an individual study. It has a minimum amount of teacher presentation and attempts to facilitate student learning about such topics as types of transportation in metropolitan areas, factors which determine the cost of a new automobile, laws governing licensing for both the car and the driver, ways of obtaining land for highway construction, pollution resulting from automobiles, job opportunities in the automobile industry, and the effect of increased use of the automobile on the American life-style. Although it is specifically constructed for use in the Parkway School District, Chesterfield, Missouri, it could be adapted for use in other junior high school settings. The unit includes the behavioral objectives and the expected student criteria for evaluation, pretests and posttests, a suggested instructional sequence, a bibliography of both student and teacher resources, and suggested student worksheets.
