Johnstone, Robert H.; And Others
This publication contains curriculum material and suggestions for teaching disease prevention and control in grades four, five and six. Objectives of this program include; 1) an understanding of the basic differences between communicable and non-communicable disease syndromes, and a familiarity with representative diseases from each of these groups; 2) gaining a perspective on man's historical efforts to understand and cope with disease, and appreciate how developments of the past are related to present efforts; and 3) be familiar with the mechanisms of immunity, and take advantage of those immunizations recommended for the prevention of disease. The publication format is intended to provide teachers with a basic content in the first column; a listing of the major understandings and fundamental concepts which children may achieve, in the second column; and information specifically designed for classroom teachers which should provide them with resource materials, teaching aids, and supplementary information in the third and fourth columns.
