Health Education-Action for the 70's. Final Report.
Garrity, Helen Marie
This project was designed to serve a need recognized by individuals in the Massachusetts Department of Education. With increased interest and requests for assistance in program planning in health related areas, a need for curriculum guidelines in health education was identified. This report is divided into two parts. Part I contains the findings of a survey questionnaire designed to identify the status of health education in the public schools. Further examination and identification of the health needs of school age children and the population in general provided justification for curriculum development. Part II of the report consists of a curriculum guide which was designed for local planning of health education programs for the 70's. The guide is to serve as a basis for local school systems to plan their own individual programs. It is organized into four broad areas: physical health, mental and social health, consumer and environmental health, and safe living. It is structured to be used at the early childhood, middle grades, junior high and senior high levels of instruction. (Author/BW)
