The Urban Landscape: A Multidisciplinary Approach. Teacher's Resource Guide.
Connecticut Univ., Storrs. Connecticut Academy for English, Geography, and History.
This report is a curriculum development project of the Connecticut Academy for English, Geography, and History, representing the creative work of the teachers who participated in the Academy's summer institute in July 1993 at the University of Connecticut (Storrs). This resource guide for teachers concentrates mainly, but not exclusively, on the metropolitan United States. Various subjects, such as race, class, ethnicity, social mobility, and technology, are investigated in connection with the city. Each lesson identifies main ideas, connections with the curriculum objectives, and resources for classroom use. Concrete suggestions and intended grade levels are specified. The multidisciplinary component is clearly stated with explicit themes for geography, literature and writing, and history. The 19 lessons, by different authors, are abbreviated for publication, but are available in their entirety from the teachers. (SLD)
