Career and Vocational Education. Concepts of Health Management System.
Larson, Curtis G.; Fiedler, Beatrice
This curriculum guide is designed to assist students in developing the ability to understand the many aspects of personal/social/mental health. It emphasizes student performance objectives in physical well-being, disease, reproduction, heredity, mental health and aging. It is also designed to assist the local teacher with organization and management of the course. The management system describes the accountability line and the information flow from the teacher to the principal and to the superintendent. First, the overall course objectives, district goals and objectives, and teacher facilitating objectives are listed. Next, the student performance objectives are presented in five units, which are titled (1) Postive Mental Health; (2) Human Sexuality; (3) Growth and Maturation; (4) Death and Dying; and (5) Man and Disease. These objectives are arranged in nine-week time frames to facilitate the collection of evaluation data at the same time as quarterly grades are issued. Appendix 1 includes a management system report--time frame check lists, teacher facilitating objectives, student objectives, and a narrative report. Appendix 2 lists suggested audiovisual materials for health education on such topics as birth control; coping with emotions, aging, and death; alcohol; buying health care; and heart disease, cancer, and high blood pressure. Two other curriculum guides accompany this document and include performance objectives for courses in metals (CE 019 077) and industrial arts (CE 019 075). (CT)
