Sociological Health Problems: Individualized Incentive Program Modules for Physically Disabled Students for Grades Kindergarten Through Twelve. Teacher's Edition.
Reggio, Kathryn D.; And Others
Presented is the second in a series of modules from a project to adapt the New York State Health Education curriculum for physically disabled students (grades K-12). An introductory section to the volume on sociological health problems provides definitions and summaries about nine physically disabling conditions and briefly considers activities at the Human Resources School (Albertson, New York) related to sociological health problems. Modules are described for grades 4-9 (developing a positive self concept and smoking and the health of the disabled student); grades 7-9 (developing alternatives to the use of drugs and developing self confidence through assertiveness); and grades 10-12 (sharing and service to others through a combined drug education project). Each module contains background information specific to the topic for nine physically disabling conditions. Also included are listings of concepts, student activities, and student self evaluations. Among four appendixes are lists of additional resources and an annotated bibliography for specific disabilities. (CL)
