Life World 2000: A Guide for Teachers.
Bailey, William F.
This teaching guide on population education is designed to accompany a television series by the same title. The series of twelve 15-minute color programs provides the basis for a high school course in population education. Produced under a foundation grant, the series is available from National Instructional Television, a division of the Agency for Instructional Television. The series considers a wide range of population-related issues in the United States, helping students to understand how their actions have an impact on population and how population has an impact on them as individuals. Students develop effective criteria for decision making, examine their own values about population matters, and become aware of the consequences of their actions on themselves, their family, their society, and the world. Each unit in the instructor's guide corresponds to a specific program and includes the purpose, program content, suggested activities, teacher facts and figures, and student materials to be duplicated. Charts, graphs, and a bibliography conclude the document. (Author/JR)
