Career Education for Adults: Health Module.
Auburn Univ., AL. Dept. of Vocational and Adult Education.; Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Adult Basic Education.
An outgrowth of State-sponsored institutes conducted by Auburn University, Alabama, to produce career education teaching modules for adults, the health module is one of five field-tested curriculum guides adopted from findings of the nationally oriented Adult Performance Level Study conducted at the University of Texas. (Basic to the Texas study was the defining of general areas of need for effective livelihood in American society.) The primary instructional objective of the health module is "to insure good mental and physical health for the individual and the family." A designator coding system identifies performance objectives with a corresponding series of learning tasks or enabling objectives; separate columns list related instructor activity, learner activity, and resources. Basic skill areas emphasized are communication skills, problem solving techniques, and interpersonal relationships. Topic coverage includes: basic medical and physiological terminology; basic health needs and safety measures; available medical and health services; child care practices; preventive care and health maintenance; interaction of self and promotion of effective coping skills; emergency first aid; health and medical insurance; and proper diet and meal planning. (An 18-page bibliography lists additional resources.) (EA)
