Population Education Newsletter, v9 n3 Nov 1980
This document presents a variety of materials related to population trends in Hawaii. Materials presented include maps, glossaries, readings, charts, activities, questions, puzzles, tables of data, newspaper and magazine advertisements, and a directory of sources of additional information on Hawaii. The overall objective is to help students in high school and junior high school social studies classes understand how populations change, how policies are devised to deal with population growth, and how population trends influence individuals, families, society, and the environment. Specific objectives are that students who read the information and participate in the suggested activities should acquire a demographic understanding and vocabulary which can be demonstrated in written and oral work, relate population change in Hawaii to other areas of the world, describe the relevance of population change to one's future well-being, appreciate the variety of viewpoints on population planning, and express feelings about population change in the future. The materials can be used in any order and can be integrated into existing curriculum on Hawaii and/or population education. The materials present a great deal of background information on Hawaiian population trends and suggest a variety of activities, including filling in a crossword puzzle on Hawaiian population growth, taking a true/false test, filling in blanks, graphing Hawaiian tourism, predicting Hawaii's future based on selected readings, listing problems associated with population growth, and responding to survey questions on Hawaiian population policies.
