Framework for Health Instruction in California Public Schools Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve.
Fodor, John T.; And Others
This guide has been designed to assist school districts in developing a comprehensive program of health instruction from kindergarten through grade twelve. It is a framework that provides structure for the development of a sequential, but flexible health education curriculum to meet local needs and provide for the changing health problems facing children and youth. Since it is a guide for local curriculum development and not a course of study, learning opportunities, methods of instruction, and suggested resources are not included. Health information is presented in such a manner that it builds around health concepts and thus allows new research to be integrated into the program as it becomes available. Each major concept has a set of correlating grade-level concepts with accompanying sample objectives and content. Content areas cover consumer health, mental-emotional health, drug use and misuse, family health, oral health-vision-hearing, nutrition, exercise-rest-posture, diseases and disorders, environmental health hazards, and community health resources. For evaluating instruction in terms of specific goals, behavioral objectives are included for each grade-level concept and provide specific illustrations of ways in which the learner may demonstrate his competencies. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title V contract. (BL)
