Housing in the Urban Environment.
Berkowitz, Gisha, Ed.; Levy, Alan, Ed.
This booklet focuses on housing, the most private human environment. The effects of housing on one's social and physical worlds, and in turn on one's attitudes toward the total environment, are examined. The activities in this booklet aim to develop an understanding of space within the housing environment, types of housing, and how one can change and control this type of environment. The 14 lessons contained in this unit deal with such housing factors as income, family size, taste, the choice process, housing needs, location, neighborhoods, and problems. Each lesson includes objectives and a purpose, a materials list, and several activities. The activities involve discussion, role playing, simulation, problem solving, map making, and worksheets. A section for teacher use suggests additional activities and provides further directions for use of the booklet. The final section prepared by the Housing Association of Delaware Valley provides advice on solving neighborhood problems. (TK)
