Community Resources for the Durham Child Development Center.
This environmental education community resource guide is an illustration of the rich potentialities offered by the child's immediate environment. Although the guide focuses on a Philadelphia community, it is written in such a format and approach for adaptation by other teachers in other localities. The goal of the guide is to broaden the teacher's and student's ideas of the community and the resources in the community. Every neighborhood has an inherent structure that makes it both unique and like every other city neighborhood. Using a familiar area, the student can be introduced to the inter-workings of city life. Listed where possible is the person who should be contacted to arrange a field trip. The hours of the shop, number of students who can be served, and any special instructions are also listed. The guide includes small businesses, large businesses, service stations, workshops, individuals, collectors, specialists, and city buildings. Resources beyond the immediate community are also included. (TK)
