Population and Social Change: A Curriculum Guide for High School Teachers. Working Copy.
Cohan, Mark E.; Gustafson, Neil C.
This curriculum guide for secondary students contains learning activities on population and social change. The guide revolves around four major concepts. The first concept is population change which refers to the numerical increase or decrease of population. Population distribution is the second major concept which refers to the patterns of where people live. Included are references to economic, cultural, geographic, and psychological factors. The third concept is the effects of population change on both the natural and man-made environments. Planning for the future is the last concept covered in the curriculum guide. For each of the concepts, one major learning activity is included with questions, supporting concepts, and evaluation. The guide lists suggested instructional objectives as well as an evaluation form for teachers to rate the curriculum guide. Ideas for additional learning experiences and sources of further information conclude the document. (Author/JR)
