An Introduction to: Population Dynamics. The Population Reference Bureau Teaching Kit.
Kent, Mary Mederios
Appropriate for secondary school students, this kit provides the basics of population dynamics in both written and visual form. Each chart covers a major population component, characteristic, or world trend. The chart titles are: (1) "World Population Growth through History," (2) "Population Growth through Natural Increase, 1775 to 1985, (3) "Effect of Migration on Population Growth, United States, 1880-1982," (4) "Population Composition by Age and Sex," (5) "Patterns of Urbanization in the World, 1900 to 2020," and (6) "Future Trends in World Population Growth, Three Assumptions." Each chart is accompanied by narrative that elaborates on information presented in the chart. A glossary of population terms is provided to assist students in building their demographic vocabulary. An accompanying issue of "Interchange" provides student study questions for each large chart and for each accompanying reading. Information on additional resources on population education and the 1985 World Population Data Sheet are also included. (LH)
