Designed to accompany a student activity packet on issues related to world hunger, this teacher's manual provides 12 units of study at the high school level. Materials are presented from a Christian perspective. The following topics are covered in separate chapters: introduction (justice and the right to food), the dimensions and scope of the hunger problem, why people are hungry (poverty, land use, the international economy, the arms race, resource abuse, misplaced priorities), overcoming hunger (insights from international conferences and examples of hungry people's improving lives), U.S. policy options for overcoming hunger, ethical issues surrounding the hunger problem, biblical perspectives on hunger, churches' efforts to deal with the problem, the Bread for the World organization, and case studies of Christian efforts to help alleviate world hunger. For each unit, objectives, background readings, lesson plans, extension activities, and resources for further study are provided. Prayer services are occasionally included. An evaluation concludes the guide. Attached to this copy of the teacher's manual are materials from the action packet, also available separately. Included are: a publications catalog, a song, a book of prayers, a drama, a guide to effective letter writing on hunger issues, and tips on using the media to promote a U.S. hunger survey. (LP)
