Sheram, Katherine A.
This poster kit presents statistics on the gross national product (GNP) per capita from 120 countries with populations of more than one million. Third in a series of kits designed to promote understanding of the process of economic and social development, especially in low- and middle-income countries, this kit contains a poster map of the world, six photographs with text, and a teaching guide designed for use in secondary schools. The map is color-coded to convey varying levels of GNP per capita among the countries of the world. The map also includes three charts: Chart 1--GNP, Populations and GNP per Capita; Chart 2--Growth of GNP per Capita, GNP, and Population 1965-80 and 1980-87; and Chart 3--Income Distribution for Selected Countries. Six photographs and accompanying texts discuss the topics: (1) education and training; (2) industry; (3) agriculture; (4) trade; (5) infrastructure; and (6) health services. The teaching guide contains 11 worksheets, a vocabulary list, a data table, a test (with answers), and an outline map. (DB)
