What is a city? What shapes it? How does its history influence future development? How do physical form and institutions vary from city to city and how are these differences significant? How are cities changing and what is their future? This course will explore these and other questions, with emphasis upon twentieth-century American cities. A major focus will be on the physical form of cities—from downtown and inner-city to suburb and edge city—and the processes that shape them.

These questions and more are explored through lectures, readings, workshops, field trips, and analysis of particular places, with the city itself as a primary text. In light of the 2016 centennial of MIT’s move from Boston to Cambridge, the 2015 iteration of the course focused on MIT’s original campus in Boston’s Back Bay, and the university’s current neighborhood in Cambridge. Short field assignments, culminating in a final project, will provide students opportunities to use, develop, and refine new skills in “reading” the city.

Created by NHPRC Teacher Participant/Creator Deirdre H. Tuite for US History; Adaptable to other grades. Throughout this year we study how the United States came to fruition. We evaluate the reasons behind the establishment of the United States and the key figures in our history. However, it is important to remember that students too are part of America’s history. The student's history is our nation’s history. As we progress through the year, these assignments have students documenting their own history, through various projects: an interview, a community snapshot, and family artifact, ending with a personal essay.

Created by NHPRC Teacher Participant/Creator Stephen Spear for AP World History Adaptable to other grades. Over the school year we worked together exploring the history of the world by analyzing the causes of events, the contexts in which they occurred, comparing events, and understanding general patterns of continuity and change over time. In our last unit, we will employ three of these methods of analysis to conduct individual research on the relationship of our families or ancestors to the events of world history.
