Get them out of the classroom and into the local area. Pick a multitude
of areas. Rural degradation, urban sprawl, water issues, crumbling
infrastructure. Stay away from the book except for the students to read
BEFORE you give them YOUR assignments. They need to know where to look
for the data they are using. They need to know the economic impact of
each area noted. Are you losing population, gaining, population getting
older, younger? Business moving? Why? What can be done geographically
to entice companies to stay?
