Introductory Unit to the Urban Environment.
Berkowitz, Gisha, Ed.; Levy, Alan, Ed.
This introductory booklet is designed to provide the teacher and the student with a strong basic framework within which both can study the urban environment. The booklet contains six lessons which look at the environment as a physical place, personal place, and social organization. Each lesson contains three sections: What You May Learn, containing the objectives; Materials, listing the needed materials; and Procedure, containing the directions for the activity. The lessons involve activities which promote student understandings of environmental relationships, people, similarities and differences. Stories, worksheets, discussions, mapping, drawing, and photography are some of the activities used to develop these understandings. A brief teacher's guide is included which explains each lesson and suggests additional activities. (TK)
