Our Living Community: Community Studies through the Daily Newspaper.
Guenther, John E.
This document presents a program designed to provide students with a comprehensive and interesting way to study their community. Although developed for secondary students, the program activities, with slight modification, should be equally successful with intermediate-level students. Using the community as the area to be studied, a major focus of the program, is on values clarification, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. The program is divided into four sections: (1) The General Scene; (2) The Social/Political Scene; (3) The Economic Scene; and (4) The Local Scene. A variety of activities has been developed for each part of the program except part four, The Local Scene, for which the teacher is expected to produce activities about the local community. The program consists of a set of objectives and related activities. Two activities are provided on each sheet. Appendices list supplemental activities and assessment possibilities. (DB)
