Health Education. A Guide for Teachers and a Text for Teacher Education.
Moss, Bernice R., Ed.
This fifth edition of "Health Education" is offered as a guide to the changing concepts of teaching in the health field. The authors believe that the full potential of health education can be realized only when school, home and community programs are interrelated. This volume serves as a source book for teachers, a text for teacher educators, and a reference tool for others in professions related to the school health field. With a companion volume, ("School Health Services and Healthful School Living", 1953, 1957), this book: (1) offers a comprehensive view of the school health program--education, service, and environment; (2) reviews the progress and problems of health education, with attention to its scope and scientific bases; and (3) discusses the health characteristics of children and adolescents along with attitudes and behavioral changes. The publication places emphasis on curriculum development and health education at various levels of schooling from kindergarten through college and adult education, and offers suggestions for instructional materials and resources.
