Population Education in Science: Some Sample Lessons for the Secondary Level.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
This booklet consists of six sample lessons integrating population education into science instruction. It is one of four in a series. Materials differ from those in an earlier series (1980) in that lessons are presented at the secondary level only; there is no duplication of lessons from the earlier series in terms of content and teaching strategies. Using an experimental approach, the main theme running through most of the lessons is that a pleasant and liveable environment is a result of a balanced and symbiotic relationship among plants, animals, and other living resources which help maintain a good ecology. Lesson topics include plant and animal population dynamics, the influence of man on plants and animals, the biosphere, communities and ecosystems, malnutrition and undernutrition, and diseases caused by malnutrition. Each lesson contains a box which provides the user with initial information on content, objectives, grade level, and subject into which population education should be integrated. Although the main body of each lesson varies, most lessons contain an explanation of content, teaching-learning strategies, and in some cases, evaluation suggestions. Lessons were adapted from materials derived from India, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. (LH)
