Nutrition, Health, and Safety for Child Caregivers: Instructor's Guide.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Instructional Materials Center.
This guide for postsecondary child development instructors is intended for use in courses on nutrition, health, and safety in a child care setting. The materials are most effective when coordinated with carefully selected textbooks. Access to a quality care center for laboratory work is essential. An introduction describes the instructor's guide and separate student laboratory manual, offers suggestions for use of the materials, and summarizes guidelines on coordinating student laboratory work. Guidelines for evaluating students follow. The main body of the guide is organized into five units: (1) Principles of Nutrition, (2) Meals and Snacks, (3) Safety, (4) Health and Hygiene, and (5) Illness. Each unit contains a list of performance objectives, a list of references, suggested classroom learning experiences to provide teaching strategies to help students achieve the objectives, a unit test with multiple choice and essay questions, and transparency and handout masters. Other contents include a glossary, glossary tests, test answer keys, and a bibliography of all references noted in the units. Materials recommended for student use have notations on reading levels and evidence of sex bias. (YLB)
