No Place to Play: Valuing Dilemmas in the Choice of Recreational Sites. Instructional Activities Series.
Martorella, Peter H.; Madden, Jack
In this activity, one in a set of teacher-developed materials for elementary geography, students investigate the selection of recreational sites in urban areas. Given characteristics of four areas of a fictitious city called Urbo, students are asked to recommend sites for public recreational facilities. The personal and social values of the students enter into the decisions. Value decisions and the concept of majority rule are emphasized in the exercises. The unit provides questions about Urbo as a case study, it is suggested that students examine their local community. See SO 009 140 for a general description and explanation of the elementary and secondary sets comprising this series. (ND)
