School Health Education. A Textbook for Teachers, Nurses, and Other Professional Personnel. Fifth Edition.
Oberteuffer, Delbert; And Others
In this book, health education is conceived not only as a broad curriculum embracing all the elements relating to the improvement of the quality of life but also as a series of health-related experiences under the direction of physicians, nurses, dentists, teachers, and other professional personnel. The book is intended for college and university students, including nurses, teachers, administrators, and others preparing in the health sciences, who will assume responsibility in educational programs. The book is divided into two parts. Part one, Foundations of Curriculum and Teaching, describes those problems or circumstances that make the study of health education an important part of a child's education. Special attention is given to conceptual teaching and a description of the development and use of behavioral objectives. Part one describes the processes of curriculum and teaching common to any discipline with careful attention to applications particular to health education. There are chapters on planning and organization for teaching, on teaching strategies stressing innovation and student involvement, and on methods and techniques of evaluation of instruction. Part two deals with foundations of administration and organization involving the promotion of health, disease controls, programs of appraisal, nutrition activities, specific problems of school-age development, and administration and community relationships.
