Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Instructional Materials Center.
This teacher's guide is designed for use by consumer and homemaking education teachers in classes emphasizing nutrition. The guide is organized into 19 topics and is based on the 7 Dietary Guidelines for Americans: (1) to eat a variety of food; (2) to maintain ideal weight; (3) to avoid too much fat; (4) to eat foods with adequate starch and fiber; (5) to avoid too much sugar; (6) to avoid too much sodium; and (7) to drink alcoholic beverages, if one chooses to do so, only in moderation. Objectives, resources, and key words are listed at the beginning of each topic. The introductions to the topic include interesting activities to be used to increase students' desire to learn. Suggested activities provide the teachers with teaching strategies to help students achieve the objectives. Teaching aids include transparency masters, handouts, information sheets, games, and skits for use with the suggested activities. The teaching aids may be reproduced as needed for classroom use. Answer keys for student activities are provided. Nutrition tests include objective test items based on information and objectives for each topic with answer keys. Media resources sections include lists and locations of videotapes and filmstrip/cassettes that are commercially available. (KC)
