Population Education in Health and Home Economics: 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 contains five sample lessons integrating population education into health and home economics 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 content and teaching strategies. Following an introduction, the five lessons focus on the consequences of rapid growth on community health; health programs to reduce the mortality rate; effects of rapid population growth on food production and nutrition; effects of family size and spacing on the health of mother and child; and age at marriage. Each lesson contains a box which provides the user with information on content, objectives, grade level, and subject into which population education should be integrated. In most cases lessons include an entry point topic, suggested time allotment, suggested procedure, summarizing techniques, suggestions for evaluation, and where applicable, necessary materials and student readings. Lessons were adapted from materials derived from India and the Philippines. (LH)
