Product Description
Community As One
By Debbie Swartz

CONCEPT: The students and the teacher(s) create a city called Community As One. The city is set up as a miniature city with various jobs and governmental positions held by the students and ran by the students. This has been done in just one of my classes (36 students) and also as an interdisciplinary unit of two or more teachers (100 students). This project is a very flexible activity that will fit almost any scenario of class structure. I have set this project up for a team of five teachers, but at the last minute one team member could not participate, so the students were then "on vacation" when they were rotated into his class. I vary the length the project is run according to the school schedule of other activities and the types of students I have. The project may be one week, one hour a day; four weeks (three days a week); or six months or more and five-days-a-week. It all depends on how much time you wish to contribute to it.
