Health Science and the Young Child.
Pollock, Marion B.; Oberteuffer, Delbert
This book provides material to design and carry out a health science program at the elementary level with outcomes which are clearly defined and measurably effective. Chapter one describes health problems that justify the school health program. In chapters two and three the processes of curriculum and the sources of data that are basic to curriculum planning and common to all disciplines are explored in detail. Chapter four focuses on defining clearly stated and measurable instructional objectives. In chapter five integration, correlation, and direct teaching are described, and the strengths and weaknesses of each plan for organizing instruction are analyzed. In chapters six through eight exemplars and nonexemplars of operational objectives appropriate to the elementary child's needs and abilities are compared, and objectives designed for the cognitive, affective, expressive, and action domains are examined. Conceptual teaching as compared to conventional methodology, explanation and examples of value-clarifying strategies, and criterion-referenced testing and measurement are discussed. The notion and function of concept, conceptualization, conceptual approach to curriculum making, and conceptual teaching are differentiated. Categorical and controversial issues are considered in chapter nine. Chapter ten discusses developing teaching-learning plans, and chapter eleven discusses the total school health program including some historical highlights. (PD)
