Transportable Teacher Training Program in Nutrition. Pre-School-Grade 12.
Bell State Univ., Muncie, IN. Dept. of Home Economics.
This guidebook consists of two main parts: a user's guide for training teachers in nutrition; and the educational materials to be used in the training program. The object of this guidebook is to increase the knowledge and competence of inservice elementary and secondary teachers in nutrition education. Sections in the user's guide describe three interrelated ways to use the guide: for self instruction, for leaders of one- to three-day teacher workshops, and to train workshop leaders to use the program. Appendices to the user's guide provide knowledge and attitude pre- and posttests, answers to the tests given in the program, an annotated list of audiovisual materials, transparency masters, workshop evaluation forms, and a script for a slide-tape presentation. The educational materials for the program are organized into three sections, followed by a general annotated bibliography. The first section treats factors influencing nutrition attitudes, problems, and assessment. The second section provides information on nutrients and the relationships of food and nutrition to growth and development. In the third section, a variety of educational methodologies, strategies, and techniques are introduced. Each section is preceded by a list of the concepts and objectives to be addressed. The general annotated bibliography provides references for the first two sections and lists resource addresses and materials. (FG)
