This book describes a 1983 Unesco workshop held to review health-education teaching prepared by workshop participants. The document, developed primarily for educators in developing countries, includes the teaching materials in nutrition and health education for teachers of grades 1, 5, and 6, and for teacher educators. Chapter 1 of the document highlights the guidelines used by workshop participants in developing the teaching units. Chapter 2 lists the workshop's guidelines for revising and finalizing a health-education training manual for primary teachers in the Philippines. Chapter 3 summarizes plenary lectures and a panel discussion covering such topics as the philosophy and objectives of health education, phases of school health programs, teacher observation, and evaluation of health-education programs. Six teaching and training units, each one offered by a workshop participant, cover different aspects of health education, such as personal health, disease prevention, safety and first aid, substance abuse, consumer health, family health, and community health. Special emphasis is placed on nutrition education. Each unit follows a format that includes the following: (1) an overview; (2) objectives; (3) teaching methods; (4) suggested learning activities; (5) resource materials; (6) evaluation; and (7) a bibliography.
