Man: A Course of Study (MACOS)
Man: A Course of Study (commonly referred to by the acronym MACOS or M.A.C.O.S.) is an American humanities curriculum project based on the theories of Jerome Bruner. Bruner believed that it was possible to teach children to be more humane and eliminate racism and ethnocentrism by studying another culture closely. This guide provides information about the project, the context and the controversy surrounding it. It also includes useful links to websites and resources on MACOS held at the Newsam Library. The bibliography at the end of the guide is a list of articles and reports on the MACOS project which has been obtained from a search on the database ERIC.

Walkable US desert cities: facilitating walkability through urban design in support of sprawl repair
Walking is a heavily underused transportation mode in United States desert cities, due to urban sprawl and its consequences, among others. Sprawl repair can help create more walkable cities, but the sole activity of infilling open spaces is not enough to ensure walkability in desert cities. Human scale urban design interventions are necessary to mitigate the impact of the desert heat on pedestrians and to create a truly walkable environment. In this research, academic literature is reviewed and case study cities from around the world are analysed, resulting in a toolkit of urban design guidelines that facilitate walkability in US desert cities. The guidelines are applied and tested on the context of Downtown Palm Springs, California. The result is a practical toolkit for urban designers that work on US desert cities and which can serve as a base for further research into walkability in extreme climates.
