Intended for use by teachers on the senior high school level in Kentucky, this curriculum guide outlines a semester course in parenthood education. The eleven instructional units include (1) the individual and his self-concept; (2) the family and its structure; (3) human reproduction, emphasizing heredity, biological systems, conception, and contraception; (4) the parent and his responsibilities; (5) pregnancy; (6) childbirth; (7) community agencies which offer assistance to parents; (8) infant care, both pre- and postnatal; (9) adjusting to an expanding family; (10) parenting children with special needs, such as physically, emotionally, or mentally handicapped children; and (11) providing a stimulating environment for child development. 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. 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, games, review sheets, pretests and posttests, and discussion questions. (ELG)
