Shaping future plans

Neighbourhoods don't just grow, but are made by human choices. Making Better Places is an excellent CD-Rom for students aged 16 to 19, offering rich insights into the development of the built environment and tools to help them contribute towards changing it. Using a mixture of video, photographs and charts, and supplemented with very useful teachers'

notes, it supplies materials for a set of 12 lessons. Students can learn about the role of architects, councillors and planners, examine the design of a shopping centre, and learn how to present their own ideas in 2D and 3D. Available from Cabe Education.
