United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).; United Nations Fund for Population Activities, New York, NY.
One of the most important vehicles for promoting the concerns of the "girl child" and the elimination of gender bias is through education, and since programs in population education are being funded all over the world, population education is a suitable and effective medium for integrating messages on the girl child. This two-volume publication deals with population education and gender issues. Volume 2 offers a practical handbook which gives the guidelines or procedures on how to integrate girl child issues into population education, both in curriculum and teacher training, giving a matrix of entry points in population education into which girl child topics could be integrated or incorporated. It also carries an array of actual lessons and teaching/learning materials compiled from various sources which offer the users ready-made instructional materials that can be immediately used in classroom teaching, instructional materials development, or teacher training. Objectives of this two-volume publication are to: (1) increase awareness of how population educators can contribute to the elimination of stereotyping and discrimination of the girl child and promote appreciation of the value of the girl child; (2) develop skills or ways and means of integrating messages on girl child issues, into population education programs, both in school and out of school; (3) obtain a quick source of exemplary strategies and curriculum/training materials for introducing messages about girl child through the vehicle of population education; and (4) provide the educators with an overall view of the literature that exists on the subject of girl child.
