A High School Program in Human Ecology: Helping Everyone Live Productively. Student Handbook.
Brandywine School District, Claymont, DE.
The program's goal is to provide high school students an opportunity to become an active force in the advancement of the human condition and to develop positive attitudes to improve their effectiveness in dealing with their environment. The student handbook consists of eight chapters, including an introduction to the program in chapter I. Chapter II, "Self-Inventory," helps students decide who they are and what they want to be. Students discuss human relations in the school. In chapters III and IV students study the physical and psychological development of humans. Chapters V and VI focus on social institutions and the physical environment and their effects on people. Chapter VII, dealing with community service, helps students understand their responsibility to contribute their time and talents to helping others. Students volunteer 25 hours of their time to work in hospitals, nursing homes, and senior citizen centers. Other learning activities include reading and discussing chapters from textbooks and short selections included in the handbook, viewing films and filmstrips, and listening to outside speakers. A student workbook containing written exercises is also provided. (RM)
