Architecture and Children.

This teacher's guide for an interdisciplinary curriculum based in architectural education is a graphically stimulating and informative publication. The built environment is used as a means to study the world and the ideas, laws and principles that govern it. While teaching about architecture, this publication is largely interested in the process of learning through visual thinking, problem solving creative thought, group interaction and communication skills. The thirteen chapters follow a common format that includes goals, skills and concepts, assignments, architectural vocabulary and related activities. A forty-page Appendix presents a series of lively and informative handout sheets about different aspects of architecture. Of interest and value to teachers and students from the upper elementary grades through high school. Contact the publisher at 111 S. Jackson St., Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 621-2250.
