This is one of a series of individualized instructional packets designed to help students and teachers as they cooperatively plan secondary social studies objectives, evaluate learning, and develop curriculum. The learning packet is designed for the intermediate student and includes: a pre- and post test; three lessons with major generalizations listed, behavioral objectives, and learning activities; and, three readings. The summarized generalizations are: 1) The technological advances made by man have brought about rapid changes making it possible for man to live a "better" life; 2) Technological changes have also created problems, will bring about many new ones, and intensify them in the future; overpopulation, congested highways and pollution are among them; 2) In the future, change will occur at an even more rapid pace; and 4) Change will require planning on the part of the people, government, industry, scientists, experts, and a progressive education system to minimize the problems. Accordingly, the specific behavioral objectives include: 1) identification of the advantages and disadvantages of technological advances; 2) identification of the changes that may take place by the year 2000; 3) identification of specific tasks to be done by our society in preparation for the future. Discussion, independent reading, and resource utilization are all a part of the inductive and deductive approach indicated in this packet. (SBE)
