Population Growth in the United States and Mexico. Geography Curriculum Project.
Dale, John R.; Rice, Marion J.
The self-study unit for intermediate grades treats population growth in the United States and Mexico. The major objectives are to improve skills in using graphics and to teach about population growth. The teaching method used is the Forced Inferential Response Mode (FIRM). The students are presented with data through maps, graphs, tables, pictures, and brief paragraphs. Using this information, they complete given statements with a word or several words, and then check the accuracy of their response in the Answer Booklet which accompanies the unit. The unit is divided into the following three sections: (1) Changes in the Mexican Population: 1500-1971; (2) Changes in the United States Population: 1500-1971; and (3) A Comparison of the Populations of the United States and Mexico Today. Review questions are included for each section. A glossary of terms concludes the unit. (RM)
