Population and Family Education. Report of an Asian Regional Workshop.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
This report summarizes information compiled at a Regional Workshop on Population and Family Education, organized by the UNESCO Regional Office for Education in Asia and held in Bangkok, Thailand, September 7 - October 7, 1970. The objectives of the workshop were to study how elements of population and family education can be incorporated in the curriculum of secondary and possible upper elementary levels of education; to prepare a few sample curriculum units in terms of analysis of content objectives; and to develop appropriate curriculum materials. Chapter 1 is devoted to the definition and objectives of population education while Chapter 2 deals with the writing of instructional materials. In Chapter 3 strategies for establishing a population education program are discussed. These strategies include convincing the appropriate people of the need for the program, planning and coordinating the various program elements, incorporating population education content into existing curricula, and developing the non-curricular aspects as teacher education and research. A summary of major conclusions is offered in Chapter 4. Appended material outlines an approach to population education concepts and content through studies in social sciences and natural sciences at three educational levels. Sample test questions, references, and conference data are supplied. (BL)
