Teaching Teens "Stuff" That Counts. A Guide for Volunteers.
Hemmerich, Cecelia A.; And Others
The nutrition instruction guide is designed for volunteer leaders in the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), which focuses on youth nutrition education and understanding teenagers. Teaching techniques incorporate the importance of socialization, "discovering" answers, positive reinforcement, and teenager involvement in presenting nutrition education. The topics of weight control, teenage pregnancy, appearance, nutrition and drugs, fad diets, and physical fitness form the subject matter basis for group discussions. Ten group activity suggestions are described along with methods and hints for volunteer leaders to follow. (EA)
