One of the main products of the Regional Workshop for the Development of Packages of Adequate Learning Requirements in Population is this prototype package of curriculum materials in population education. The workshop notes that one of the shortcomings of country programs in population education is that the content integrated in school subjects is quite inadequate in bringing about desired attitude changes regarding population issues and problems. The prototype package contains: (1) a set of guidelines for the development and use of a good package; (2) population education curriculum built around the information, education, and communication (IEC) core messages; (3) user's guides; (4) learning materials for literate out-of-school youth, including stories/booklets, posters, and charts; and (5) survey instruments for assessing the interest, needs and problems of the community, and evaluative research instruments for pre-testing the reading materials and posters.
