To aid junior high and high school educators and curriculum planners as they develop population education programs, the book provides an overview of the population education knowledge base. In addition, it suggests learning activities, discussion questions, and background information which can be integrated into courses dealing with population, physical survival, and/or world problems. The book is presented in eight chapters. Chapter I discusses some of the ways in which population has been taught including as a problem-solving situation and as a topic to be studied through methods of inquiry such as defining issues, placing population within a values context, identifying universal laws and principles, and predicting logical consequences of suggested solutions. Chapter ii explains world population growth rates and offers activities such as studying and constructing population pyramids. Chapters iii and iv explore family planning and population regulation by physical and social systems. Chapter v investigates the relationship of population density to social stress. Chapter vi discusses how various urban, rural, and migratory populations relate to their environments. Chapter vii examines how populations are dependent upon natural resources. The final chapter explores the role of values in population education and delineates major issues which should be treated in a population education course. (Db)
