Mini-Course in Demography: World Explorations.
Kosinsky, Janna
News and Notes on the Social Sciences, p1-4 Win 1984-85
Addressing the need for world geography classes to consider demography and other cultures, this paper presents a teaching unit to be included in seventh grade world geography courses. The primary focus of this unit is an individual project in which each student chooses a country and uses basic geographical skills and knowledge to analyze the relationship between that nation's people and their environment. The culminating activities of the unit are sessions in which students present their knowledge to the entire class. Before students begin their projects basic information about demography is presented and a possible sequence is suggested that covers population increase and its impact on technology, decision-making about fertility, and time allocated to work and leisure. A day-by-day schedule for topics is given as well as suggestions for helping students with their projects and for evaluating students. (IS)
