Contemporary Slums of India from a Geographic Perspective: A Three-Day College Unit. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad, 1997 (India).
Orf, Thomas M.
This paper contains a course outline for a teaching and learning unit to examine India's slums from a geographic perspective. Students in a college freshman and sophomore Human Geography class will discuss the problems and prospects of these slums. The unit is divided into three parts: (1) background information examining the slums from a contemporary geographic perspective while simultaneously discussing its relevance in a Human Geography class; (2) student activities involving critical thinking where students examine these characteristics of the slums through the use of role-playing; and (3) a slide presentation showing many of these slum conditions as they presently exist. Each part of the unit may be covered in one 60-minute class session. (EH)
