Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
This is the third part of a three-part curriculum guide dedicated to improving the nutritional status of children and adolescents as well as inspiring lifetime habits of healthy eating. It is also a total nutrition education program that encompasses nutritional aspects of a student's daily life both at school and at home. Teachers are provided with specific grade-level lesson plans and learning activities that include student handouts and worksheets, teacher resource pages, and overhead transparency masters. The high school guide is organized into five sections. The first section describes the program including cultural awareness information, the interaction of nutrition education with school food service, parent involvement, and program visibility. Section 2 discusses implementation of the ESR IV curriculum guide. The third section addresses modifications of the program for special populations. Section 4 presents an instructor's resource guide for teaching nutrition education. The final section presents grades 9-12 nutrition lessons emphasizing diet-related diseases, prevention techniques, and current nutrition issues. Nine appendices include: suggested teacher resources; bibliography; a pattern for daily food choices, and school breakfast and lunch patterns; recommended dietary allowances; a food composition table; dietary guidelines for Americans; a glossary of terms; suggested instructional strategies; and a health hotline of agencies and organizations.
