Population Education Interchange, v18 n1-4 Feb-Dec 1988
The four issues of this volume are each concerned with a specific topic in population studies. Issue number 1 , "Demographic Illiteracy," indicates that U.S. students are not aware of world population growth patterns. The information is taken from the Second International Science Study, 1983. An annotated list of 16 population studies resources is included. Issue number 2, "The Changing Face of America," is designed to accompany the student chartbook teaching module, "U.S. Population: Charting the Change," and contains review and reference questions for that material and an annotated bibliography of nine related resource materials. Issue number 3, "Teachers Guide to 'Facts in Focus,'" is an explanation of the teaching module, "World Population: Facts in Focus," and consists of a one-page teacher's guide for that publication and an additional one-page worksheet, "Where in the World?" An annotated list of six resources is also given. Issue number 4, "What Is Overpopulation?" defines overpopulation and discusses carrying capacity and overpopulation measurements. An annotated list of three related resources is included. This is the final issue of "Population Education Interchange" and a short history of the publication is given. (PPB)
