Connecticut Univ., Storrs. School of Allied Health Professions.
The two-part set consists of a student handbook and a related teachers' handbook in allied health education for use at the ninth grade level. The student handbook contains nine units which focus on the science curriculum: (1) introduction, (2) weights and measures, (3) human body, (4) chemistry, (5) electricity and magnetism, (6) heat and its effects, (7) fluid dynamics, (8) wave motion and sound, and (9) light. Each unit presents a general introduction to the subject area, objectives, vocabulary words to be defined, related professions, and learning activities and exercises for acquiring skills and understanding concepts related to a particular health field. The teachers' handbook consists of two parts: a brief teaching guide to the above units and a curriculum guide outline for a course applying scientific information to allied health professions. The curriculum lists the objectives of the course and suggests speakers from different professions. A study outline of the course based on the nine units is presented briefly. Also included in the teachers' guide are suggested resources; a description of films, filmstrips, and printed materials; a list of films and their suppliers; and suggested laboratory studies. (EC)
