Beyond the Curriculum: Preparing Teachers for Student Health Issues.
Deutsch, Charles; Merseth, Katherine
This paper includes four cases that may be incorporated into a variety of preservice teacher education classes such as foundations of education, current issues in education, curriculum methods, administration and supervision, or classroom management. Each case includes discussion questions, a fact sheet, and references. The four cases are: (1) "Divided Loyalties," in which a new teacher confronts the impact of school policies about alcohol and drugs; (2) "Confronting Your Prejudice," which raises issues about teacher attitudes and biases, childhood obesity, and teasing and bullying; (3) "Learning the Ropes," a case that addressees parental AIDS, mechanisms of HIV transmission, teaching about HIV/AIDS, and privacy and confidentiality issues; and (4) "The Turning Point," in which a teacher wonders about his responsibilities for protecting students from harmful behaviors. The paper includes guidelines for students and faculty when using the case method. (SM)
