Syllabi and Instructional Materials for Courses in Demography. Resource Materials for Teaching.
Hartman, Harriet, Ed.
One of a series of resources for teaching sociology at the postsecondary level, this volume contains syllabi and instructional materials for graduate and undergraduate courses in demography. The first of nine sections, an introduction, contains an overview of contents, additional resources for teachers of population and demography, general teaching resources, and cost and ordering information. Section II consists of syllabi for five introductory demography courses. Syllabi for six courses in techniques of demographic analysis are provided in section III. Section IV contains course outlines for four specialized courses in population topics: fertility, mortality and morbidity, internal migration, and migration. Section V focuses on interdisciplinary courses. Fourteen syllabi are provided for courses such as social demography, historical demography, issues in reproductive behavior, adolescence and fertility, aging, economic demography, and politics of population policy. Syllabi in sections II-V were selected from courses offered around the world. Section VI contains 16 sample assignments on selected topics in demography. Exercises focus on issues such as population growth, population distribution, life tables, cohorts, migration, mortality, fertility, nuptiality, and the world food system. Sections VII and VIII contain suggestions for research projects and film usage, respectively. The final section lists contributors' names and addresses. (LP)
