D-Man: Teacher's Guide [and] D-Man Deaf Super-Hero Fights for Good Nutrition!
Miller, Nancy Q.; And Others
The comic book featuring a deaf super-hero and the accompanying teacher guide are designed to teach junior high school students about nutrition. Section 1 of the teacher's guide outlines student activities which are grouped according to nutritional concepts. Objectives, subject areas, and resources are identified. Seven nutritional concepts, identified by the Illinois Nutrition Education and Training Program, are covered: physiological facts, nutrients, food handling, life cycle, social/psychological aspects of food, food technology, and nutrition and society. Activities are keyed according to the following subject areas: consumer education, health, home economics, language arts, math, reading, science, and social studies. Section 2 offers supplemental teaching information including handouts with background nutritional information (such as food or menu terms, nutrition terms, and nutritional concepts and objectives by developmental level), a student study guide, discussion questions, illustrated signs for nutritional terms, and a list of 49 resources (including books, curriculum guides, and audiovisual materials). A list of organizations and agencies providing instructional materials on nutrition completes the teacher's guide. (SW)
