Family Life Education: Curriculum Guide.
Zuccaro, Mary; And Others
Designed to serve as a model and resource for teachers setting up family life education programs at the secondary level, this family life education curriculum guide presents a specific ten-session model for programs at both the high school and junior high school levels. While both programs attempt to provide a broad overview of the areas commonly covered in family life education courses, the junior high program tends to focus more on the issue of self-esteem, while the senior high programs focuses more on problem solving and decision making. Topics of the junior high program sessions are an introduction to self-esteem, listening and communicating, sex roles, adolescent growth and development, pregnancy and birth, decision making, birth control and parenting, and pregnancy alternatives and venereal disease. Session topics for the senior high program include reproductive anatomy and physiology, sex roles, decision making within relationships, venereal disease and communication, pregnancy and birth, teen parenting, pregnancy alternatives and birth control. Appendixes contain a family life education bibliography, audio-visual resources, film guides, a sample parent notification form, and a sample parents' review night. (MN)
