Integrated Nutrition Education Junior High.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
This collection of nutrition lessons has been produced so that junior high school teachers of various subject areas may offer an occasional lesson on a nutrition topic. The objectives of each nutrition lesson are consistent with concepts which the Nutrition Education and Training Program in Illinois has identified as the most important nutrition messages for students to comprehend. Each lesson provides a statement of objectives, notes to the teacher, and a list of class activities. Additionally, each lesson specifies the month of the school year and the curriculum areas in which the activities are to be implemented. Accompanying each lesson are materials, called "helps," that supplement the lesson by providing additional facts, reading material, and learning activities. Related materials, such as a chart of revised recommended dietary allowances and a list of sources of free and low cost nutrition education materials, are included in eight appendices. (Author/RH)
