Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
This report concerns a project to analyze available materials and design and develop supplementary ones to prepare students in grades 7-12 to cope with medical emergencies in natural, technological, and national disasters. Section 1 defines the project. Section 2 summarizes conclusions of the analysis phase, which focused on three sets of materials: Medical Self-Help Training, the American Red Cross Standard First Aid Personal Safety book, and "Your Chance to Live." It describes the resulting five-section curriculum design: general requirements for a casualty prevention and care instructional program, program goals and curricular objectives, selection and organization of instructional content, selection and organization of learning experiences, and an evaluation plan. Section 3 discusses the four project phases of analysis, design, and development; materials development; materials revision and reproduction; and field testing. Findings of pilot and field testing are reported in section 4. Section 5 describes the project's products--a student manual and accompanying teacher's guide. Objective and summaries are provided for each of the ten chapters in the student manual. Illustrations, cover design, and story structure are discussed. The format of the teacher's manual is also described. Recommendations in section 6 focus on curriculum delivery system, dissemination/diffusion program, teacher orientation/training program, and revision and further development. (YLB)
