This publication contains curriculum suggestions for teaching Mental Health for grades seven, eight, and nine. The content and activities of this guide are intended to help teachers give the adolescent some understanding of the factors which have influenced his development and which will continue to influence him as a functional and responsible human being. More specific objectives include: 1) develop a realistic understanding of self-potential; 2) achieve a better adjustment in their interpersonal relationships; and 3) realize that normal individuals differ in patterns of physical growth and development. The publication format is intended to provide teachers with 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.
