The Development and Evaluation of a Kindergarten Nutrition Guide Based on Opinions of Oklahoma Kindergarten Teachers Toward Nutrition Education.
Schmidt, Carolee Ann Alexander
The purpose of the dissertation was to develop appropriate materials for implementing nutrition education at the kindergarten level. Of the kindergarten teachers who volunteered to participate in the project, 101 completed the kindergarten teacher nutrition survey. Their opinions served as the basis for the design and development of a nutrition guide. Designed to integrate nutrition education into the existing curriculum, the 20-page guide consists of a preface and three sections. Section 1 contains suggested learning activities to help children understand five basic concepts about nutrition. Section 2 includes varied cooking experiences for the classroom, and section 3 is a resource list of books, teaching materials, films, and filmstrips, and a puppet pattern. The guide was mailed to the teachers, and after four months teachers were asked to fill out an evaluation instrument. One hundred and one teachers participated in the evaluation. Information obtained regarding teacher characteristics, attitudes, and evaluation of the guide were analyzed and presented in both narrative and tabular form. Findings served as a basis for recommendations for future research. Contents of the report include: introduction, literature review, procedure and method, presentation and results of data, summary, conclusions, and recommendations, and bibliography. Appended are the survey instruments, nutrition guide, and project correspondence. (RG)
