Idaho K-12 Comprehensive Health Education Content Guide and Framework.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
This framework is designed to help Idaho schools develop their comprehensive health education curriculum and program and formulate realistic goals for themselves and their students. The guide outlines major shifts in emphasis represented by the proposed framework, such as a shift from focusing on separate areas of content to focusing on making connections among disciplines. It defines educational vocabulary, lists Idaho goals for comprehensive health education, discusses performance-based education and assessment, presents a matrix of goals and exit performance standards, and offers a mission statement and a vision statement. The framework itself is divided into sections covering kindergarten through fourth grades, fifth and sixth grades, seventh and eighth grades, and ninth through twelfth grades. Within each section, the guide provides goals, performance objectives, and sample progress indicators for specified knowledge, skills, attitudes, and applications. Benchmarks are listed for fourth grade, eighth grade, and exiting students, along with traits indicating good performance of each benchmark. (JDD)
