National Evaluation Systems, Inc., Amherst, MA.
This instructional modular unit wlth instructor's guide provides materials on important aspects of one of the major systems of the human body--the digestive system. Its purpose is to introduce the student to the structures and functions of the human digestive system--and the interrelationships of the two--and to familiarize the student with some of the terms and concepts necessary for an understanding of the digestive system. The modular unit is made up of several components: a pretest; four instructional modules with objectives, informative materials, and corresponding post-tests; optional activities for the students; and a glossary of terms used in the unit. Topics covered in the modules include an introduction to the digestive system, alimentary tract, accessory organs, and the utilization of food. The instructor's guide provides suggestions for effective use of the materials, including descriptions of each component, use of the components, scoring the post-tests, and answers to the post-tests. Three additional modules on the respiratory musculoskeletal, and circulatory systems are available separately (see Note). (YLB)
