Know Yourself: Comprehensive Health Education Material for High School Students.
Chicago Public Schools, IL.
This book was developed to help high school students understand the changes taking place in their bodies and to learn about themselves at the same time. Topics include good grooming, clean health habits, human reproduction, sexually transmitted diseases, responsible sexual behavior, and substance abuse. This information can increase students' understanding of themselves and lead students to eatablish patterns of good health throughout their lives. The lessons and activities in this manual were written for limited-English-proficient (LEP) high school students by a team of English-as-a-Second-Language teachers utilizing the Sheltered English approach. The material includes visual aids and activities to make new concepts and vocabulary more easily understood. Beginning with an introduction that discusses dating, good grooming, and sexuality, the comprehensive health education materials are organized in 8 units as follows: (1) Skin, Hair, and Grooming; (2) Sexuality; (3) Human Reproduction; (4) Pregnancy; (5) Childbirth; (6) Birth Control; (7) Sexually Transmitted Disease; and (8) Drugs, Alcohol, and Tobacco. A glossary, bibliography of instructional materials for LEP students, and an answer key complete the document. All materials may be duplicated for classroom use. (LL)
