Population Growth: The Human Dilemma. An NSTA Environmental Materials Guide.
Fowler, Kathryn Mervine
This annotated bibliography lists more than 100 books about population growth. The books are intended for students in kindergarten through grade 12 and their teachers. The books were selected on the basis of their appropriateness to the interests of classroom teachers and students, and on the basis of readability and accuracy. Most were published during the late 1960s or 1970s. Parts I and II present resources for teachers and high school students, respectively. Entries are grouped in the following categories: basic general references, world population, population of the United States, people on the move (urbanization, migration, immigration), fertility control, consequences of population growth, growth versus no growth, and population policies: strategies for the future. Parts III-V present resources for junior high, grades three through six, and kindergarten through grade four. All entries give information on title, author or editor, publisher, date, length, and price. Annotations are detailed and lengthy. Three appendices offer additional information about films, curriculum materials, and organizational sources of information and materials related to the population issue. (AV)
