Assessing Population Issues through the Use of the Document-Based Question Model. Fulbright Overseas Seminar, Indian, July-August 1994. Curriculum Project.
These materials were developed by a participant in the Fulbright Summer Seminar on India. The materials provide information for teaching about world population growth, for average to above average for ninth graders in the Bethlehem Central School system (New York) using various instructional methodologies which are intended to help students develop analytical skills through a series of group activities and individual writing tasks. A major component of this methodology is linked to the use of Document Based Question (DBQ) activities. Other cooperative learning strategies include the use of small group discussions, role playing, and panel discussions. The procedure for using the DBQ model is outlined in detail with suggestions for evaluation. Research involves the use of primary, secondary, and tertiary sources. (EH)
