Review for Population Connection, Washington, DC, USA
I was introduced to the Population Connection curriculum while a doctoral student in social studies/history education. I became a trainer in 2005 and have been presenting Population Connection workshops at conferences and to the undergraduate education majors I teach since then. I am impressed with the relevancy of the topics covered (ecology/global issues related to education and distribution of resources) as well as the way these topics are integrated among content areas e.g., one lesson may fit standards in math, social studies, and science.
The lesson plans are well-done, tailored for both beginning and veteran teachers; in addition, the folks I work with at Population Connection are dedicated and passionate about the program. Every semester, students list the Population Connection workshop and activities as one of the top activities in my course!
