Population and Human Development: A Course Curriculum Including Lesson Plans, Activities, and Bibliography. Revised.
Murphy, Elaine M.; Long, Alison T.
This course outline suggests materials and learning activities on the interrelated causes and consequences of population growth and other population matters. The document describes 15 class sessions which integrate information for sociology, anthropology, psychology, biology, animal behavior, and education. Topics include the history of human population growth, evolution, political implications of scarce resources, immigration, world population growth, family size, urbanization, and practical and philosophical consideration of United States population policies. Learning activities involve students in role playing, group discussion, presentation of papers and reports to the class, community surveys, and values clarification games. For each topic, information is presented on reading and writing assignments, suggested lecture topics, discussion, learning activities, films, class visitors, special papers and projects, and behavioral objectives. Intended primarily for use on the college level, the curriculum can also be modified for use with advanced secondary school students. A bibliography and form requesting teacher feedback conclude the document. (Author/DB)
