Civil Society and Sustainable Communities Curriculum.
American Forum for Global Education, New York, NY.
This social studies curriculum unit for grades 10-12 provides activities designed to focus students on actual case studies of sustainable community initiatives. The first activity guides the students in a discussion about the terms "civil society" and "sustainable community" to understand how the two terms are related. In the second activity two case studies (one urban and one rural) are looked at to see how the ideas discussed in the first activity are applied to real-life situations. Detailed student handouts and activity instructions are provided along with an extensive teacher's guide. (RJC)
