Human Growth and Development Curriculum.
North Allegheny School District, Pittsburgh, PA.
This K-12 curriculum guide represents North Allegheny's integrated, planned, and continuous program covering various topics concerning human development at different age levels. The major objective of the guide is to establish for teachers acceptable content and materials which focus generally on human development but more specifically on topics of physiological growth and drug education. Student goals stress learning not only the facts about the body, but also the development of health attitudes toward normal changes. In regard to drug education, students learn that present behavior influences future health. The guide is arranged into two major sections by elementary and secondary grade level. Each section includes: 1) guidelines for program development; 2) behavioral objectives; 3) teaching suggestions; 4) activities; and 5) suggested resource materials. For an evaluation of the human growth program see SO 006 169. (SJM)
