This document is the first volume of the Louisiana curriculum guide for teaching a one-semester course in child and adolescent development in grades 10-12. The first of the guide's two major units, entitled "Growth and Development of the Adolescent," focuses on many of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social experiences of the adolescent. The second unit, entitled "The Adolescent in the Family," is intended to help the student see his/her family relationship from the family's perspective. Each of the major units is further divided into lessons. Each lesson begins with generalizations that express the basic idea of the concept. Performance objectives focus on the type of behavior the student is expected to display as a result of the learning experiences. An outline summarizes information that is covered in the review of literature, which includes background information for the teacher to use as a beginning point for planning the presentation. References and suggested readings identify sources that the teacher can use in securing additional information. A variety of learninq activities, instructional aids, and evaluation experiences are given for each concept. Many of the learning activities and instructional aids include figures for the teachers to use as transparency masters or handouts for students. Evaluation experiences are given with most lessons, and additional learning activities, instructional aids, and evaluation experiences that are pertinent to the entire unit are placed at the end of each unit. The curriculum guide also contains two scope and sequence charts to show how the material in the guide can be presented. (KC)
