A Plan for an Instructional Unit on Population Dynamics. Final Report.
Brown, Jerry L.
A grade twelve instructional design unit on population is described in this curriculum plan. The purpose of the unit, approximately six weeks in length, is to provide students with basic knowledge about population dynamics and decision-making, process, and value analysis skills using approaches of social sciences. Emphasis is upon helping the individual to understand the effects of his behavior on himself and others. The plan document presents: background information on the center; procedures for developing instructional materials; the unit purpose and goals, and possible multidisciplinary and future-oriented topics; two assessment instruments (appended) constructed to measure students' population related knowledge and attitudes (the results indicating that although students are concerned they lack basic knowledge about population); instructional objectives; and the matching of objectives with four instructional techniques, cast into an "instructional flow" that can serve as a framework for development of the unit.
