This publication provides a basis for effective structuring of health instructional programs at the local level within Texas state guidelines. Fifteen topics are covered under three domains: (1) individual personal health (dental and mental health, physical fitness, safety, and drug use); (2) consumer health and health services (family and social health); and (3) community, environmental, and international health. For each topic, several learning concepts are given, with essential outcomes suggested from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. It is suggested that the individual classroom teacher create the daily lesson plans in accordance with learner capabilities and progress. Activities presented are discussion or test oriented. A brief outline of program and student evaluation criteria provides primary and secondary indicators of the effectiveness of the lessons. (FG)
