By John A. Koppel and David N. DalPorto. Students examine the workings of city government through six simulated community problems explored through role-playing and discussion groups. In the imaginary, mid-sized city of San Tomas, students interact in a mayor/city council government to solve problems with zoning, rising crime rates, equitable education, lack of affordable housing, freeway construction, and an issue of energy versus the environment. Reproducible fact sheets, resident profiles, maps and graphs illustrating problems, city history, city charter, and evaluation sheets are included. Participants: 20–36. Time: 5–10 class periods. Grades 7–12. Illustrated. 8" x 11". History Simulations. 41 pages. ©2001.
