Interchange. Population Education Newsletter. Volume 1, Number 1.
Population Reference Bureau, Inc., Washington, DC.
This bi-monthly newsletter is designed to provide information to teachers, curriculum supervisors, and administrators on the most recent developments in the growing effort to introduce population issues into formal school curricula, primarily at the middle and secondary school levels. This initial issue summarizes the activities of 1971-1972 sponsored by school systems, universities, and population/environment organizations for purposes of motivating and equipping teachers to handle population issues and answers. Announcement is made of future scheduled teacher training programs and of related publications of population issues, information, and education. Brief news notes give current information and statistics about these concerns: New York State's abortion law, population trends in China, and projections about the population growth in the United States over the next two decades. An activity sketch based on the article about U.S. population growth is suggested for use in classroom discussions of population distribution and migration. Information and ideas from readers are welcomed. (SHM)
