About This Walk
Have you ever wondered how businesses on campus, in campustown and in downtown
Champaign change when 43,603 students are in session at University of Illinois? This walk
examines how businesses in all three locations serve students and the community at large, and
provides the opportunity to meet with several local business owners. Whether you’re a current
student, a “townie”, or just interested in connections between these spaces, we’ll have the
opportunity to explore the diverse cuisine, shopping, nightlife, and services that lie between
campus and downtown. In addition to talking with several shop owners, there will be

Assignment 2: Design a Jane’s Walk
Due: September 30, 2019 by 5:00 pm
This assignment is designed to get you thinking
critically about a place that you are familiar with.
City planning is concerned with developing and
implementing intentional designs to create stable,
livable, vibrant, and connected communities.
Without any formal urban planning training, Jane
Jacobs transformed the planning conversation by
observing patterns of urban life within her own
neighborhood in New York. Jane’s book The Death
and Life of Great American Cities captures Jane’s
approach to urbanism, and is one of the first books
that many aspiring urban planners are exposed to.
Following Jane’s Death in 2006, cities throughout the world have organized citizen-lead walking
tours called Jane’s Walks to commemorate Jane and her contribution to urbanism, and to
continue her legacy of citizen-lead advocacy and leadership around urban issues.
For this assignment, you will design a Jane’s walk focused on a city and topic area of your
choice. Your walk design should include the following:
Walk Detailed Description and Plan
Writing in complete sentences, provide the name of the city, state (if applicable), and country
where your walk will occur. Briefly describe your experience with this place (for example, did
you grow up there, live there recently, vacation there?). What is the population size of the place
you are profiling? What are the characteristics of this place and its region (is it a large central
city with surrounding suburbs? A suburban area near a larger population center? A rural area?)
Next, describe the theme or topic of your walk. Why is this significant in relationship to the
context you describe above? What is the value of sharing these elements with the public through
a walk – what makes this walk a unique way of experiencing this theme in this place?
After you have provided a brief description of your walk’s context, design a 60 to 90-minute
walk that highlights features related to a theme of your choosing. For instance, if you were
designing a walk that examines the economic connections between the University of Illinois
campus and the surrounding area, you might start your walk on campus (perhaps beginning at a
landmark like the Illini Union or Alma Mater statue), proceed through portions of Campustown,

and end in downtown Champaign while pointing out how students use the various businesses and
services in these areas. You might stop at particular points to illustrate why a particular business
is important, how the area has changed over time, or to comment upon some needs which are not
currently met in the area.
Your description should contain complete instructions on where to start and where to go, so that
someone could replicate your walk on their own. This description should also include an
annotated route map that highlights walk stops and activities and should also provide narrative
that illustrates points related to the theme which your walk focuses on. It may prove useful to
include other visual illustrations to help understand where you are taking us and what we can
expect to see.
Walk Flier
Create a short flier advertising your walk (you will find an example flier on the course Compass
site). This flier will be how others discover your walk and choose to join it.
Tips for Success
Word Limit: The written text of your assignment should be 1,200 to 1,500 words excluding
your walk flier.
Formatting: Text should be written in complete sentences and paragraphs. Section headings
may be useful for organizing information. At a minimum, your analysis should contain three
basic section headings: Introduction, Walk Plan, Walk Flier (you don’t have to stick to these
names, however).
Visuals and Illustrations: Your walk plan should include a map as an aid to successfully
planning walk stops and navigating the walk route. As an adjunct to this map, consider including
pictures and other visuals which might help someone replicate your walk.
Assignment Submission: Your assignment is due via the appropriate Compass 2G Assignment
Dropbox by 5:00 PM (CST) on September 30th, 2019. Late assignments will be graded down a
full letter grade for each 24 hours late (so an “A” paper submitted at 5:01pm can at a maximum
receive a grade of “B”).
Grading Rubric
Your assignment will be assessed based upon the following qualities. For each quality, your
assignment will be assessed as follows: Inadequate, Needs Improvement, Meets Expectations,
Exceeds Expectations. Below you will find the criteria for receiving a “Meets Expectations”
assessment for each criterion:
