          Example: Population and Population Growth



• Use inquiry based questions to facilitate discussion(whole class or
  small group) on generalizations that can be made from population
  and population growth data.

For example: Countries with low economic development tend to have
younger populations with higher population growth. This challenges the
state to deal with issues of overpopulation, educational opportunities,
job creation, emigration and unrest. On the other hand, developed
countries tend to have older populations with lower population growth
resulting from increased job opportunities and education for women.
This challenges the state to deal with issues of an aging population,
retirement benefits, and economic growth potential.

         Example: Population and Population Growth



• Use AP GOPO countries as case studies to bring qualitative analysis
  to the quantitative data discussion.

For example:
• How has China been able to bring its population growth rate down?
  What future challenges does the state face?
• How has Iran been able to bring its population growth rate down?
  What future challenges does the state face?
• Why is Russia experiencing negative population growth? What
  challenges does the state face?

2) The most common strategy adopted by developing countries to deal
   with the problem of population growth is:
    a) Establishing policies that seek to reduce fertility rates
    b) Closing their borders
    c) Encouraging students studying abroad not to return home
    d) Reducing the size of their urban areas
    e) Redistributing economic resources to produce equality
