Explorations of how modern homes and communities have been shaped by such forces as sense of place, historical and cultural connections to buildings, and ethnic traditions lead students to understand the modern man-made world. Rather than encouraging students to passively accept information, this guide encourages investigation through many different activities including carving, researching, drawing, designing, and interviewing.
