Summary

Part I of this progress report places emphasis on curriculum development from the standpoint of the teacher-developer. The role is defined and factors such as teacher selection, release time, administrative cooperation, work schedules, assigned work space, and benefits to the school division and to the teacher are discussed. Recommendations deal with planning time: teachers should be hired for summer curriculum development and full release time should be given to development of materials, to field testing, and to evaluation. Part II reports on the to-date development of processes and materials. The approach to the six week program is interdisciplinary, with emphasis on geography and biology. The objectives (listed as ten Intended Learning Outcomes) are to develop student awareness of and increase positive attitudes toward urbanization. The use of films, transparencies, simulation games, taped interviews, and newspaper articles is outlined in an introduction to Urbanization and in sections of Population, Attitudes, Environmental Concerns, Legislation and Urban Planning. Under Environmental Concerns, behavioral objectives are listed for two to three day units on Water Pollution, Air Pollution, Urban Resources, Solid Waste Management, Noise Pollution, Food and Closed Ecosystem. The major ideas or skills to develop for each objective are listed, as are materials developed so far for each unit. Part III acknowledges assistance received from various agencies and organizations. A related document is ED 055 015. (JMB)
