Criteria for Comprehensive Health Education Curricula.
English, Jill; And Others
The purpose of this guide is to enable a district or school to develop or select a comprehensive school health education curriculum that is educationally sound and based on research of effective programs. The criteria for a comprehensive school health education curriculum are organized into the following categories: (1) goals and objectives; (2) content or subject matter included in the curriculum; (3) teaching strategies to facilitate student learning; (4) learning activities engaged in by the students; (5) materials which are a part of the curriculum pack used by teachers or students; (6) the amount of time devoted to implementing the curriculum; (7) student assessments administered during curriculum implementation; (8) materials which reflect cultural equity when there is a balance in the positive representation of diverse populations; (9) the balance of gender roles depicted in traditional and nontraditional settings; and (10) district-specific criteria. For purposes of evaluation, each criterion is presented on a chart with a Likert-like scale for appraising how well that criterion is currently being met, and a space is provided for needs and comments.(JD)
