Curricular Renovation through Population Education.
de la Cruz, Leonardo
The document is intended to assist educators in Nepal in implementing curriculum reform or improvement by using population education as a means. Procedural designs that can be followed are described. First, the goals of population education must be defined. Second, a decision has to be made as to which body of knowledge or population concepts are necessary to realize the stated goals and objectives. Third, subject areas into which population education can be infused or integrated must be identified at each grade level. Fourth, a scope and sequence of population education concepts must be developed. The fifth step in the process is the development of curriculum materials for teachers and students. Sixth, population education must be institutionalized in the educational system. And, finally, the population education curriculum materials must be evaluated. Throughout the document, examples and illustrations are provided, e.g., a scope and sequence chart is included. (RM)
