Yankee Lands: A Land Use Curriculum Project.
Antioch/New England Graduate School, Keene, NH.
In response to issues surrounding the acquisition and planning of Pisgah State Park, New Hampshire, the Antioch/New England Graduate School has produced this set of activities related to land use decisions. Contained are learning experiences designed to help students appreciate New England's natural and cultural history in order to encourage a sense of responsibility and respect for the land. The six units deal with ecological succession, the hill farm community, New England's energy resources, using the winter landscape, the politics of wilderness development, and future land use decisions. Each unit begins with a major pacesetting activity, followed by a series of supplementary studies. Detailed background information regarding biological and social aspects of the Pisgah State Park area accompanies several lessons. While many activities presented are field experiences in Pisgah State Park, these lessons are also intended to serve as models for land use studies in other locations. (WB)
