Produced by participants at the Unesco Regional workshop on Population and Family Education held in Bangkok, Thailand, in October 1970, the instructional materials intended for elementary and secondary students are to be considered sample first-draft materials usable for reference purposes by groups responsible for designing population education curricula in individual countries. The objective is to help students become aware of the advantages of family planning in terms of better health, inter-personal relationships, and quality of life for the welfare of not only the family, but also the community and the nation. A variety of teaching techniques such as role playing, plays, and other activities are suggested for each of the eight units: 1) Family size and family welfare; 2) Planning for the future; 3) Quality of life in a family; 4) Effects of rapid population-Growth on the community (Philippines); 5) Population-growth and quality of life (Indonesia); 6) The impact of rapid population-growth on the sociocultural life of the people; 7) Economic consequences of rapid population-growth; and 8) Population. Units provide information as to level, objectives, content, procedures, and activities. (SJM)
