Elementary Health: Authorized Resources Annotated List.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Standards Branch.
This comprehensive, annotated resource list is designed to assist in selecting resources authorized by the Alberta (Canada) Education Department for the elementary health classroom (Grades 1-6). Within each grade and topic, annotated entries for basic learning resources are listed, followed by support learning resources and authorized teaching resources. The program of studies for elementary health is organized around five themes that are taught at each grade level. These are Self-Awareness and Acceptance, Relating to Others, Life Careers, Body Knowledge and Care, and Human Sexuality (Grades 4-6). Materials are selected based on these criteria for acceptability: curriculum fit and instructional design; tolerance and understanding; developmental analysis; physical properties; cost; and Canadian content. The annotated list of resources includes descriptive abstracts for each item. Lists of Withdrawals of Authorized Resources, suppliers, regional resource and urban media centers, and other sources of information for health teachers are also included, with an index to titles and series.
