Adaptation of Nutrition Educator Determined Objectives for Learner Developmental Levels.
Bell, Paul E.
The development of curriculum in the area of nutrition is focused on with emphasis on developing norm-forming communication. Emphases by grade level from preschool to senior high are presented, and nine basic characteristics of a curriculum are outlined: (1) the curriculum should be longitudinal; (2) the curriculum should set basic nutritionally sound standards for decision making; (3) the curriculum should be deliverable through various subject area disciplines; (4) the curriculum should be comprised of exemplary instructional segments; (5) flexibility in presentation modes, learning activities, and cultural identity should be stressed; (6) material should encourage teachers to spin off; (7) the materials should include nutrition instruction for teachers that exceeds that presented to the students; (8) the materials should be addressed to the teacher rather than to serve as a student textbook; and (9) teacher preparation requirements should be as undemanding as possible.
