Health Curriculum Materials: Grades 10, 11, and 12. Strand IV, Environmental and Community Health; Consumer Health. Special Edition for Evaluation and Discussion.
Van Hooft, Gordon E.; And Others
This publication contains curriculum suggestions for teaching Environmental and Community Health - Consumer Health for grades 10, 11 and 12. Emphasis is placed on the psychological dimension of contemporary quackery and pseudo-scientific practices, and sources of health information and health counsel. In general, the grade 10 through 12 materials provide students with experiences that will enable them to function as intelligent and discriminating adult health consumers. Outcomes that are expected include: 1) becoming increasingly aware of the forces which influence their purchasing power; 2) understanding the role of advertising as it affects consumer demands; and 3) developing an ability to critically analyze advertising and promotional appeals. The publication format of four columns is intended to provide teachers with a basic content outline, in the first column; a listing of major understandings and fundamental concepts which children may achieve in the second column; and information specifically designed for classroom teachers which should provide them with resource materials, teaching aids, and supplementary information, in the third and fourth columns.
