This publication contains curriculum suggestions for teaching Environmental and Community Health-Consumer Health, for grades seven, eight, and nine. Outcomes desired at this level include: 1) being aware of the practice of health quackery and being able to recognize those traits that characterize the health fraud, his techniques, and his products; 2) to fully understand the hazards of health quackery and the reasons why quackery continues to flourish in our society; 3) having an awareness of the basic factors involved in consumer motivation and the significance of the teen-age consumer of health services and products; and 4) developing those insights and abilities that characterize intelligent and discriminating consumer health practice. The publication format of four columns is intended to provide teachers with a basic content outline in the first column; a listing of the major understandings and fundamental concepts which pupils 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.
