Teacher Resource Book for Population Pressure in Indonesia, Problems of Industrialization in Eurasia, Power Blocs in Eurasia. Man on the Earth Series.
Gunn, Angus
This teacher's resource book is a guide to three intermediate texts about Eurasia entitled Population Pressure in Indonesia, Problems of Industrialization in Eurasia, and Power Blocs in Eurasia. The texts are part of the series, Man on the Earth, which probes broad-based issues confronting mankind. The resource book distinguishes 18 major concepts discussed in the texts, such as urbanization and development, by means of an overview chart. Six teaching approaches developed in curriculum research and development projects--openers, concept developers, skills, simulations, inquiry techniques, and valuing processes--are described for the teacher with references to additional information and examples of direct application from the texts. Suggested answers to the questions posed in the three text books and lesson plans for a three-month study of each text are augmented by specific uses of the six techniques in each text. Other ways of focusing on the text materials are facilitated by a summary of content by place, concepts, and type of information, such as statistics, and by a short topic index. Questions for teachers and students to evaluate the materials are also included. (JH)
