The City and Government: The Art of Making Choices. Instructional Activities Series.
Rueff, Joseph A.
This unit, one in a set of elementary teacher-developed materials for geography, is on land use in cities. It contains follow-up activities to the "Cities at Work" filmstrips, which are part of the "Our Working World" program published by Science Research Associates (SRA). The filmstrips deal with resource allocation and zoning problems in cities. The unit provides teachers with objectives, strategies, and further activities for ths SRA program. For example, following the viewing of a filmstrip, students are asked to develop models and draw maps to illustrate land use, based on information given in the filmstrip. Some exemplary land use maps are included in the unit. See SO 009 140 for a general description and explanation of the elementary and secondary sets comprising this series. (ND)
