The basic components of a comprehensive health education program, its curriculum, and curricular emphasis are presented. Major topic areas in the curriculum for kindergarten through sixth grade are listed with indications of curricular emphasis at each level. A reprint is included of the "Critical Health Problems and Comprehensive Health Education Act," legislated in Illinois in 1971. Appended are brief outlines of the curricular categories required by the Act and a sample self-evaluation instrument for local use by school administrators in assessing the extent of their compliance with the intentions of Illinois health education legislation.
