Secondary School Health Education Curriculum Guide.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This guide for instruction in grades 7 through 12, developed with the help of 27 specialists in all the school health disciplines, views health as the embodiment of total man, his physical, psychological and social dimensions. A conceptual approach to teaching health is utilized, wherein a concept, once understood, can be retained even as new facts are constantly uncovered. Ten content areas, each having a major concept, are identified: (1) consumer health; (2) prevention of communicable disease; (3) chronic and degenerative diseases; (4) environmental health and safety; (5) community health; (6) growth and development; (7) health and fitness for daily living; (8) nutrition; (9) use and abuse of tobacco, alcohol and drugs; and (10) sex education for family living. A short section describes how to utilize the curriculum. For each content area, motivating questions, selected relevant learning activities and a bibliography are included. (TL)
