Health Teaching in Elementary Schools.
Humphrey, James H.; And Others
This guide for teaching elementary school health education attempts to (1) depict the meaning of modern health education; (2) present principles of learning applied to health education; (3) propose a health curriculum based on valid criteria and suitable for use in the various grade levels of the elementary school; (4) explore the many possibilities for health educational media; (5) identify ways in which health might be taught in conjunction with other subject areas; and (6) point up certain innovations in providing desirable health learning experiences for children. Chapter one introduces the concept of the total school health program. In chapter two, a discussion of teaching and learning is presented in terms of an application to health education. Chapter three is designed to help the reader determine what to teach, and chapter four provides a number of media suitable for use in health teaching. Chapters five and six present suggestions for the elementary school health curriculum and explain what might be taught at the different grade levels. In chapter seven, many recommendations are made to show how teachers might deal with the sensitive areas of health education, such as alcohol, drugs, and sex. Chapter eight shows how teachers can capitalize on movement experiences of children in the development of health concepts. In chapter nine, a searching and systematic study of integration of health teaching has been made. The last chapter discusses evaluation with emphasis on ways and means of assessing pupil progress with respect to knowledge, attitudes, and behavior. (BD)
