Montana Assessment for Health Enhancement.
Montana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Helena.
The purpose of this guide is to enable schools and school districts to develop, select or assess a comprehensive health enhancement curriculum that combines health and physical education into one integrated program. The evaluation instruments in this booklet were developed by the Montana Office of Public Instruction around the newly adopted requirements and guidelines. Since this assessment is based on accreditation standards in health enhancement, goals and learner outcomes for the program are provided. This booklet outlines health enhancement learner goals (primary, intermediate, and upon graduation); health enhancement program development; criteria organization; preparation for curriculum development; using the criteria; and curriculum analysis. Curriculum evaluation forms focus on: goals and objectives, content, teaching strategies, learning experiences, materials, time, evaluation, cultural equity, sex equity, district-specific criteria, moving beyond the curriculum into other areas of the school program, and a summary of curricula analyses. The document concludes with a section entitled "Healthy People 2000" that presents national health promotion and disease prevention objectives, and a list of resources. (LL)
