Social Issues Resources Series. Population.
Goldstein, Eleanor C.
The Social Issues Series (SIRS) is a set of volumes with each one addressed to a different social issue. Each volume consists of articles which have been reproduced from newspapers, magazines, journals and government publications representing the prevailing spectrum of opinion, emphasis and complexity. Each volume is in loose-leaf notebook format, with the articles and binder color-coded for easy identification. Approximately sixth articles are contained in a volume, arranged in chronological order; supplements are planned for publication twice each year. Articles were selected to support a systematic study of an issue, using the problem-solving approach. Thus, the materials in each volume provide descriptions of the symptoms of the problem, examination of different aspects of it, definitions, determination of the scope of the problem, analyses of its causes and possible solutions. The series can span a wide range of grade levels. Each volume is accompanied by a Teacher's Guide which briefly describes some teaching strategies that might be used with this material--inquiry, class discussion, problem solving, and model construction. Suggestions for evaluations are also made. This volume on population contains articles from 1956 through 1971, and sources of the articles range from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to Look magazine. SO 003 776 is related. (Author/JLB)
