School Health Practice. Sixth Edition.
Anderson, C. L.; Creswell, William H.
This text provides core subject matter relating to health services, health education, and healthful living for teachers, health educators, school nurses, administrators, and any others who have a role in the school health program. Its six parts focus on the what, how, and why of a functional school health program today. To start, the history of health care and school health programs today are discussed, followed by the identification and definition of essential terminology. Part one discusses the health of the normal child; physical growth and development; emotional development; and departures from normality. Part two outlines a basic plan for the organization of the school health program. "School Health Services," part three, includes the appraisal aspect of health services; preventive aspects of health services--communicable disease control, safety, emergency care, and first aid; and remedial aspects of health services. Part four covers foundations of health instruction, contributions to health care instruction from other subject fields in high school; and health instruction for elementary, junior high, and senior high school programs, while part five describes a healthful school environment. Part six stresses the importance of appraisal in school health practice with a detailed discussion of evaluation areas and procedures. The appendixes provide listings of resources in health instruction, sample health record and report forms, a health program evaluation scale, and an inventory of school health practices. (MM)
