Veal, Willis D.
This activity is one of a series of 17 teacher-developed instructional activities for geography at the secondary-grade level described in SO 009 140. The activity investigates economic change in developing nations. It employs the dialogue approach. Given data about the Aswan High Dam in Egypt and about the environment of northeast Africa, students analyze the dam's contributions to the Egyptian economy and evaluate the societal and ecological problems that resulted from its construction. A chronological table of Aswan Dam developments, statistical data, a table of planned economic growth activity, and maps of Egypt and the Nile Conservation Works are provided. (DB)
