Ruckes, Nina Tiglio; Mongillo, Michael
This curriculum guide was prepared to help Connecticut high schools offer an opportunity to disadvantaged high school students who are interested in home economics education to earn some college credit toward a degree in dietetic technology. The curriculum guide includes an overview of the course with a course description, recommended textbooks, objectives, outline, and evaluation methods. The nine units of the course cover the following topics: how food affects you; rating yourself nutritionally; physiology for nutrition; water; carbohydrates; lipids; proteins; vitamins; and minerals. Each unit consists of a behavioral objective, suggested evaluation, learning activity/resource, pretest, content related to the suggested texts, study vocabulary, and suggestions for evaluation. Expected outcomes and a list of available resources are listed. A comprehensive examination completes the course. (KC)
