This unit will be a combination of the graphic language in a logical sequence of short units. The short units will be arranged to develop vocabulary, subject matter, and history related to the unit.
The following objectives are listed in sequence:
we all realize many inner-city students must develop
desirable image about themselves and their neighborhood
. I believe students would get a better feeling about themselves and their neighborhood by learning the history of the buildings they live in and of many of the surrounding structures in their area.
to develop a visual awareness of types of structures in their neighborhood and surrounding areas
to help create and develop a better strategy for identifying basic house designs
Fourth, the students will be introduced to the different types of roofs on existing structures studied.
Fifth, the students will explore the various types of ornamentation on buildings covered in this unit.
