Wisconsin Health Careers Awareness Curriculum: A Curriculum Unit for Health Education.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Intended for health educators, this five-unit curriculum on health careers is developed to aid health educators teaching the required instruction in health education for the State of Wisconsin graduation requirements. The units are designed to be taught in one segment or interspersed throughout a 1-semester health course. The units include a variety of activity choices to meet the needs of students in grades 7-12, with the majority in grade 10. An introduction is followed by a course outcome summary that includes target population, description, and outline of competencies and performance standards. Each unit begins with separate unit outlines for middle school and high school that are comprised of these components: learning objectives; student activities with time required; and activities for alternate or extended learning. The unit concludes with worksheets, transparency masters, activity sheets, and information sheets. The units cover the following: (1) an introduction to health careers; (2) diagnostic services; (3) therapeutic services; (4) environmental services; and (5) information services. Units 1, 2, 3, and 5 each consist of materials for 2 days, and Unit 4 consists of materials for 1 day. (YLB)
