Environment and Population. A Sourcebook for Teachers.
Horsley, Kathryn; And Others
The primary objective of this sourcebook is to help the teacher relate causes and consequences of population change to other social and environmental issues already being explored in the classroom. Sources suggested here are for use as supplementary material to be integrated into existing curricula. Divided into main sections that cover Contemporary Issues, Family Life, Health, History or Social Studies, Science, and Sociology, each chapter is also divided by concepts, and contains supportive discussion, suggested activities, references, recommended readings, and a list of relevant films. All of the chapters except two, Contemporary Issues and Sociology, are divided into Level I (most appropriate for students in grades 7-9), and Level II (geared more to the interests and abilities of high school students).
