Health Education Guide to Better Health 1966, Grades 7-12.
Speilholz, Jess; And Others
Prepared with the aim of strengthening health education in the Washington schools, this working copy of a curriculum guide provides resource information for teachers in grades 7-12. It is sequentially oriented with materials related to students' health needs and interests. Thirteen units of instruction are outlined: alcohol, anatomy and physiology, community health, consumer health, dental health, disease control, drug education, family health, health careers, heredity and environment, mental health, nutrition, and safety education. Individual units present an overview of the topic and a list of desired competencies. Each competency is then described in detail, appropriate concepts listed, and sample learning experiences and resources to develop the concept indicated. This information is presented for both junior high and senior high levels. A list of resources (books, pamphlets, magazine articles, and films) supplements the unit. In addition, the guide defines health instruction, indicates the place and need for health education in the school, and suggests possible use by school districts and individual teachers. A general bibliography for teachers is also included. (BL)
