Middle/Junior High School Parenthood Education Curriculum Guide for Consumer and Homemaking Education.
Hadley, Sharon; And Others
Intended for use by teachers on the middle or junior high school level in Kentucky, this curriculum guide outlines a four-week course in parenthood education. The eight units included are as follow: (1) responsibilities of parenthood, including parental roles and financial responsibilities; (2) human reproduction; (3) family planning and birth control; (4) pregnancy; (5) childbirth; (6) the needs of an expanding family; (7) providing a stimulating environment for child development; and (8) family crisis, such as death, illness, and divorce. For each of these units, behavioral objectives are identified and stated in terms of student competencies, and the specific teaching strategies are accompanied by supporting generalizations and references to outside resources (those for teacher use, rather than student use, are indicated). A list of these resources is provided at the end, including books, pamphlets, filmstrips, and other miscellaneous teaching aids. The appendix contains instructional activities for classroom use, such as worksheets, role playing, discussion questions, pretests, and quizzes. (ELG)
