Technology and Man: The Humanities and Science (Selected Study Topics for Gifted Students in Grades 9-12).
Abbott, Barbara; Diers, Russell
One in a series of units of instruction for gifted students, the booklet focuses on humanities and science. Three sample units are offered for students in grades 9-12. In "Man's Origins: Where Did He Come From?" students examine the conflicts over evolution versus creationism, impacts of genetic control, and the ecomonics and politics of the population problem. The second unit, "Man's Future: Where Is He Going?" involves students in questions of utopia, behavior control, nationalism, and futurism. The final unit, "Man's Search for Immortality: Can He Overcome Death?" examines literature on death and dying, religious concepts of the savior, and empirical and rational arguments for and against immortality. Each unit begins with a listing of suggested reading and audiovisual materials. (CL)
