New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
The interweaving of personal and community health with world health are referred to in this prototype curriculum, to show students in grades 7-9 that health problems of individual nations are health problems of the world. Specific curriculum content studies: (1) factors influencing world health (population, culture, family structure, economic level), (2) world health education, (3) major world health problems (disease control, nutritional problems, mental health), and (4) international programs and agencies (International Office of Public Health, Pan American Health Organization, UNESCO, WHO). Appended material includes bibliographies of multimedia resources for teachers and students. This publication is one in a series of health curriculum materials devoted to environmental and community health (Strand IV). Four other strands deal with physical and mental health, sociological health problems, and education for survival. The format consists of four columns intended to provide teachers with: (1) a basic content outline, (2) major understandings and fundamental concepts, (3) teaching aids and learning activities, and (4) information about resource materials, sources, and personnel. Because of the comprehensive nature of the total curriculum, teachers are advised to become familiar with all strands presently in print. Related documents in Strand IV are ED 037 738-9, ED 049 477-8, and SE 016 280-6. (BL)
