Using an OSAE to Learn about Life in Two New Delhi Hutments
Weller, Kay E.
Journal of Social Studies Research, v29 n2 p9-18 Fall 2005
This manuscript is a description of personal observations of two hutments in New Delhi, India. Data was gathered from my hotel window using the OSAE method of landscape observation. The OSAE is the method I use to understand processes that can be seen when studying a landscape. It is the most useful tool I have ever used when teaching geography. This manuscript includes components of an OSAE, observations of a specific New Delhi hutment, and a suggestion about how to use this information in the social studies classroom.
