With an acute awareness of learning problems among inner-city students, the teachers in New Haven, Connecticut, modified their courses to relate to the opportunities and challenges of modern education. They reorganized the traditional, year-long, survey history courses into quarter miniunits which emphasize the inquiry approach to analyzing content and developing educational skills. Provided in the booklet is a concise outline of steps for developing an effective miniunit, which includes general skill development, sample course descriptions and objectives, and special classroom methods such as mock trials, student taught classes, and sound and light shows.
