The aim of these curriculum materials is to provide (1) essential background information regarding the more common forms of cancer and (2) learning experiences that emphasize the acquisition of knowledge regarding the cause, prevention, and treatment of cancer. The materials will enable students to: (1) identify the seven danger signals of cancer; (2) distinguish between healthful and unhealthful behavior; (3) describe actions to take regarding early detection and treatment; (4) conclude that most forms of cancer can be prevented or cured, and many presently uncurable forms controlled; (5) distinguish between normal and abnormal cell activity; (6) describe the nature and known causes of cancer; (7) list the four most common and preventable forms of cancer; (8) make responsible health decisions regarding personal behavior that will result in the prevention or early detection of cancer; (9) appreciate the value of learning about cancer; and (10) describe the kinds of cancer research being conducted. The information is organized into three sections--basic cancer information, supplemental reading, and fact sheets. Appendixes include: instruction for breast self-examination and lists of periodicals, books, governmental agencies, sources of educational aids, pamphlets, and films. (MM)
