School Injury Prevention Resource Guide.
This guide has been developed to provide resources to teachers to address injury prevention in their classrooms. Entries in this guide represent materials which the Injury Prevention Program has identified. Chapters are divided by their target grade and age level. Curricula are listed by the youngest grade which they target. For each entry, information is provided on the target injury, the target grade, a description of the program, support materials, how to obtain further information, cost of the program, and comments. At the end of each chapter is a list of curricula described in earlier chapters. An index cross-references entries by the specific injury areas. A final chapter lists addresses where additional non-curricular materials can be acquired. Curricula listed under early childhood deal with children's pedestrian safety, burns, playground safety, bicycle safety, and spinal cord injuries/traumatic brain injuries. At the elementary level, curricula deal with bicycling safety and health promotion. At the middle school level, curricula focus on managing anger, skills for injury prevention, and stopping violence. At the high school level, the curriculum concentrates on family and dating violence prevention. (NB)
