The World of Health Occupations. A Two-Year Cooperative Program.
Purdy, Joan M.
The two-year cooperative health occupations program curriculum guide was prepared to introduce to the schools, and more importantly to the studdent, the vocational opportunities to be found in health careers. The student's elected goal should lead to employment upon graduation because of specialized training, and may open doors to advanced education to prepare for a more advanced position in the health field. The document consists of seven units for the junior year: (1) orientation to school and health occupations, (2) introduction to aspects of health and human behavior, (3) growth and development of the person, (4) introduction to legal aspects, (5) body structure and functions, (6) skills related to health occupations, and (7) nutrition. The senior year consists of an orientation to the world of work. Each unit begins with an introduction and then is organized by content, teacher activities, student activities, and desired behavioral outcome. Appended are materials for testing, student records, and lists of recommended textbooks and audiovisual aids. (Author/LJ)
