Health Education Resource Guide, Junior High.
Federal Way School District 210, WA.
As part of a health education program for K-12, this curriculum guide for grade eight provides: (1) a short overview of health education; (2) a scope and sequence chart which lists specific topics to teach on mental health, physical health, community health, and safety that are appropriate at different grade levels; (3) a list of objectives; and (4) sample learning activities and accompanying learning resources for each objective. Since health education is influenced greatly by individual value systems, activities are not designed to teach right or wrong but to encourage students to examine issues from different perspectives and then to form their own opinions. Activities involve a variety of teaching techniques including reading, discussion, guest speakers, audiovisual aids, worksheets, games, writing, and demonstrations. Some topics covered are the human body; alcohol, drug and tobacco; communicable diseases; first aid; nutrition; mental health; family life--heredity, growth and development; and consumer health. (DC)
