This manual presents a curriculum on the health and nutrition of children in the developing world for students in middle schools. The objectives of the curriculum are to give American students a more accurate idea of the problems related to child survival worldwide, to enable them to integreate these issues into their regular classroom activities, and to become involved in related follow-up activities. Emphasis is placed on lessons relating to a health stragegy called "GOBI" (an acronyn for growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, breastfeeding, and immunization). The guide is divided into six units, each of which provides background information, instructional materials, and suggestions for activities inside and outside of the classroom. The subject focus of each unit is as follows: (1) World Overview; (2) Growth Monitoring; (3) Oral Rehydration Therapy; (4) Breastfeeding; (5) Immunization; and (6) Resources. Evaluation activities, pre- and post-tests, and information on members of the Atlanta Campaign for Child Survival are included. (KH)
